A Deepings sport club has secured a grant from South Kesteven District Council (SKDC) to make more secure for tennis hopefuls in the area.

A grant from SKDC’s Community Fund was awarded to Deeping Tennis Club to refurbish the perimeter fence at its

courts in Langtoft.

It now provides a safer place for dozens of local children and adults to enjoy practice lessons and games at

the club.

Colin Pummell, Chairman of Deeping Tennis Club, said: “The fencing was in real need of repair and we thank the Community Fund for the opportunity to make the courts more attractive for everyone to use.

The fencing makes all the difference in ensuring our members, and those who wish to use the courts, can do so in a facility fit for purpose

“It makes all the difference in ensuring our members, and those who wish to use the courts, can do so in a facility fit for purpose.”

SKDC Leader Coun Bob Adams said: “The improvement to the perimeter of the club’s site will mean that potential Andy Murrays and Johanna Kontas can enjoy the sport in more comfortable and safe surroundings.

“It is a good example of the Community Fund’s commitment to allocating funding to projects that will have a wide community benefit.

“This will only enhance the sporting facilities available for those in Langtoft and the surrounding area.”
