New from Saltdean Tennis club: Brighton & Hove City Council are no longer supporting and maintaining the tennis courts in Saltdean Oval Park and the rest of the parks tennis courts across the city. This has been in discussion for a number of years, and due to funding cuts they have decided to stop funding any tennis courts in the parks.
At Saltdean Tennis Club we want to ensure that the courts remain in a good condition for all players in Saltdean, so we have decided to see if we can take on the management of the courts.
Tennis courts are very expensive to maintain, around £10,000-12,000 per court for full resurfacing, and other cleaning and repainting costs in between resurfacing plus new nets regularly. This means we are having to introduce a charge to use the courts going forward. This charge will go towards building a fund to allow us to look after the courts.
This year we are trialling a new booking system, used by other tennis clubs in Brighton, which is linked to the LTA (Lawn Tennis Association) website. Anyone can easily book a court by going to saltdeantennis.com. We have new signs up on the courts to explain how to book and we hope people across Saltdean will help support us to keep this community asset alive.
