New courts please: Renfrew tennis courts get a £15k upgrade

Budding Andy Murrays and Roger Federers are all ‘set’ to ‘love’ the reopening of Renfrew’s tennis courts after a £15,000 makeover.

The tennis courts in Robertson Park have been reopened after upgrading thanks to funding awards of £10,000 from the Renfrew and Gallowhill Local Area Committee and £5,000 from Braehead Shopping Centre.

The funding has enabled Renfrewshire Council to install new drainage systems, improve the existing blaes, and put in new nets and posts.

Renfrewshire Council Leader Derek Mackay said: “I am delighted that the courts have been done up and are ready to be used just in time for Wimbledon, which always encourages people to get out and take up tennis, and the start of the school summer holidays. As part of our Active Renfrewshire strategy the Council is committed to providing people with opportunities to get out and get active.”
