WORK has begun to renovate a tennis club.

The Wickham Community Tennis Club will open this April after work is carried out to renovate it into a fully-fledged club with two new floodlit courts.

The Lawn Tennis Association and the Parish Council provided over £110,000 in grants for the work.

A total of 140 people have already signed up to join the club when it opens.

Club treasurer Adrian Keen said: ‘We are absolutely delighted with how things are progressing.

‘We are determined to make this club the best-value community club in Hampshire and to offer the most affordable and best structured coaching programme available to the public.’

There is a club open day on Saturday, March 31 at 9am.
