Clifton Park tennis courts reopen this weekendPublished Friday, 5th April 2019
After a year in the making Rotherham Council opens its new tennis and basketball courts at Clifton Park this coming weekend.
The new facilities at Clifton Park, which include three tennis courts and a brand new basketball court, will be opened on at 10.30am on Saturday 6 April by Councillor Sarah Allen, cabinet member for Cleaner, Greener Communities.
The launch event will be attended by local sports groups including Moorgate Tennis Club and the Rotherham Hawkes Basketball club.
Councillor Allen said, “Clifton Park is a brilliant asset to our town and these new sports facilities are a welcome addition to what the park already has to offer.
“The new courts will increase opportunities for people to play more sport and in a safe environment.”
The new courts have been built on the site of one of the old bowling greens, which had not been used for a number of years. As well as the new sports courts, Clifton Park has recently upgraded its car parking facilities in anticipation of a higher number of visitors over the coming years.
Further information about Clifton Park and the new facilities, including details on how to book a court, can be found on the Clifton Park sports website or by calling Parks Tennis.
