Chatteris Tennis Club back in action
Chatteris Tennis Club reopened its courts on Monday, March 29, with many members getting back into action.
Members are eager to get back on court after the latest lockdown and the demand for court time has been high.
In addition to adult tennis, the mornings have resumed with junior coaching programmes operating throughout the Easter break.
However, everyone has been able to get a game due to all four of the courts now having floodlights, thereby enabling play to continue into the evening.
During lockdown, floodlights have been installed to courts three and four with financial support from club funds, local funding, the Healthy Fenland Fund and the Lawn Tennis Association. The club was also able to replace the traditional halogen floodlights on their other two courts with LED replacement bulbs.
LED gives several advantages, notably, the light is whiter and more even, with less spillage onto the surroundings, but perhaps more importantly, the running and maintenance costs are very much less than traditional halogen, thus helping the club to reduce its carbon footprint.
Chairman Simon Grainger said: “The latest set of floodlights is another terrific development.”
He said the club is there for those starting out, who are a little rusty, play a good game or are looking to keep fit.
There are very competitively priced coaching programmes with LTA-accredited tennis coaches, for all abilities and age groups.
In addition, the club is also currently offering a 25% discount on all memberships, with a single membership costing just £75 for the year.
