A tennis club has opened two new hard courts, building on its clay courts that were opened a couple of years ago.
MP Steve Barclay joined members of Wisbech Tennis Club to mark the official opening.
The longest serving club member of over 50 years, Margaret Mee, cut the ribbon.
Six years ago, the club only had four grass courts which were often unplayable due to the weather.
It had no floodlights and a portaloo.

Steve said: “Together with floodlights, a children’s court and clubhouse, it marks a remarkable transformation in facilities.
“It’s a huge tribute to the hard work and dedication of Sue Beel, Jane Page, Wendy Cropp and Sue Pitcher as well as the members that have put in a massive amount of work to bring this to fruition.”
