Cannock Chase District Council unveiled the new tennis courts at HednesfordPark as part of a £3.1M Heritage Lottery Fund project yesterday.

Representatives from Cannock Chase District Council, Staffordshire Environmental Fund and Friends of Hednesford Park officially opened the brand new tennis courts at HednesfordPark, with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Wednesday 25th September.

This is the first phase of the project part funded by Staffordshire Environmental Fund and the Heritage Lottery Fund which has seen the five adult tennis courts being replaced with four adult tennis court and four junior courts all on one level with a new drainage system and new fencing with gates to allow access for all.

Cannock Chase District Council recently obtained £3.1M of Heritage Lottery Fund grant as part of the improvements to HednesfordPark and War Memorial.  The full project will take several years to complete.

Councillor Christine Mitchell, Culture and Sport Portfolio Leader said “I am really pleased with the work that has taken place on the new tennis courts, they look fantastic.  This is a great start to a really exciting project for HednesfordPark.

I hope this investment will help inspire the next generation of tennis stars and give this District the next Andy Murray.”

Councillor Alan Dudson said “I am delighted to officially open the new tennis courts at HednesfordPark; this is a great facility for residents and just the start of a bigger project.”

John Dutton, Chief Executive of Staffordshire Environment Fund said “We are happy to be involved in the project and hope this new facility will encourage young people and the community to take up tennis.”
