A tennis club which reopened for the first time this year hopes work done during lockdown can help it develop for future generations.
Chatteris Tennis Club has seen soaring demand since it reopened on March 29 as Covid-19 restrictions eased, as adults returned and junior coaching programmes took place over Easter.
It also installed new floodlights on two of its courts thanks to club funds, the Healthy Fenland Fund and the Lawn Tennis Association, as well as replace their traditional halogen lights with LED replacements.
One of the main benefits of new LED lights is cheaper running and maintenance costs, plus helping the club reduce its carbon footprint.
Simon Grainger, chairman of Chatteris Tennis Club, said: “We are delighted to be able to play tennis again.
