Tennis players in the borough will have improved playing conditions following refurbishment by Havant Borough Council.
The improvements to the courts at Emsworth Recreation Ground, Bidbury Mead and Purbrook Heath will include repairs to areas of damaged surfacing, repainting of the courts and new nets and posts.
The courts will need to be closed for a few days while refurbishment takes place. The current schedule is:
- Emsworth Recreation Ground – Monday 7 September (originally 2 September)
- Bidbury Mead – Monday 7 September
- Purbrook Heath – Monday 14 September

Councillor Alex Rennie, Havant Borough Council Cabinet Lead for Communities, said:
“As a council, we understand the importance of offering good quality, accessible and welcoming sports facilities to residents.
“Getting and staying fit is particularly important now as it can help protect against the risks of coronavirus.
“Following the refurbishment, the courts will be available for many local people to enjoy tennis in a safe, outdoor environment for years to come.”
