Unfortunately, the opening of the tennis court has been delayed. Advice from the contractor is as follows:
During prolonged spells of extremely hot weather following construction it is most likely that the tarmac may soften, if there is evidence of this ie paint and tarmac lifting, please suspend play immediately and wait till temperatures have cooled. This is not a problem the following year once the surface has been through all the different seasons.
Therefore, based on this advice, it was decided to delay the official opening and wait for the surface to harden (when the weather cools) to avoid any damage being caused to a brand new court.
We hope parishioners will understand and apologise for any inconvenience.
