Harrow Council have revealed that work to upgrade tennis courts across the borough will begin next week.
The Council has now received £587,000 from the Lawn Tennis Association to bring the public courts in 13 parks across Harrow ‘up to a good standard’.
The work will include the full refurbishment of 11 courts that are currently in an unplayable condition.
Harrow Weald Recreation Ground (Boxtree Park) will be the first to see the work undertaken next Wednesday (1 March).
Following on from that, Harrow Council said that refurbishment work is planned to start at Centenary Park’s two currently unplayable courts and Headstone Manor Recreation Ground’s six unplayable courts from Thursday (2 March) with Rayners Mead tennis courts also due to have new gates installed on the same day.
The tennis courts at Pinner Village and 2 of the 3 courts at Chandos Recreation Ground will undergo deep cleaning from Monday 6 March.
Chandos Park’s third tennis court is set to become a multi use games area, confirmed the Council.
Refurbishment works to the disappeared courts at Queensbury Recreation Ground and Roxeth Recreation Ground are then due to commence from Friday 10 March.
Work is expected to take around four weeks to complete meaning that all will be ready for use ahead of the 2023 summer playing season.
