A project to bring state of the art tennis facilities to a Suffolk town has been completed.
Tennis courts at the Kesgrave War Memorial Community Centre (KWMCC) have been given a complete makeover, to make them some of the most advanced in the county.
The project has been a year in the making and was funded with help from Sports, Amenities, Recreation in Kesgrave (SPARK) which runs a charity shop in the town.
Sports England and Kesgrave’s district councillors also helped with the funding.
All four courts at the centre have been resurfaced and repainted to help bring them up to spec.
Stuart Lawson, general manager at KWMCC, said: “It’s been a collaboration through the community and beyond.
“It felt like a real partnership.
“We had a little event to say thanks to everybody.”
Mr Lawson said the centre had tried to make the most of the recent shutdown to improve facilities elsewhere as well as on the tennis courts.
“We have tried to make the facilities even better during the shutdown,” said Mr Lawson.
“We have new petanque court and a cricket scoreboard.”
