The DCA are pleased to announce that the tennis court/football pitch at Hernhill Playing Fields has now been improved with an up to date all-purpose surface. This has replaced the old tarmac surface which had become old and dangerous and in desperate need of repair.
This improved facility has been possible by a combination of a grant from Viridor and the contributions of local people by way of supporting DCA activities. At present we are awaiting the final application of sand, which is needed for the playing of tennis. Currently the facility is perfect for football and even basketball, but for tennis, the bounce is still a little unpredictable.
The price of hire is £2.50 per hour for DCA members and £3.50 for non-members. Yearly season tickets are also available for £60 to DCA members only and allows unlimited bookings.
Access will be way of a coded padlock, with the code being given by email when booking is confirmed.
In the next few months we will be installing lighting to the court, to enable it to be used longer in the evenings.
Please take the opportunity to use and enjoy this court.
