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.
