Anyone for Tennis

Thanet District Council would like to congratulate Andy Murray for his win at Wimbledon this year.  Now that the good weather has arrived and encouraged by Andy’s win, we hope that everyone who has been inspired by Wimbledon will use the local tennis facilities in Thanet.
Thanet has a number of tennis courts that are available to the public to use which are free of charge:
Lawn Road, Broadstairs CT10 1AD
Montefiore Avenue, Ramsgate, CT11 8BD
Spencer Square, Ramsgate, CT11 9LD
Hartsdown Park, Hartsdown Road, Margate CT9 5QX
Westbrook Tennis Courts, West Cliff Gardens, Margate CT9 5DS
Hodges Game Centre, Palm Bay Avenue, Margate CT9 3SE.
St Mildred’s Courts, Old Boundary Road, Westgate CT8 8AA
There are also two local Tennis Clubs, Broadstairs and St Peters Lawn Tennis Club - and Margate Lawn Tennis Club -
These clubs offer coaching and competitions to members.

Councillor Iris Johnston, Cabinet Member for Community Services said “After the excitement and wonderful result of the Wimbledon fortnight, it would be a wonderful legacy for the tennis facilities around Thanet to see an increase in use over the coming months and hopefully years.”
 “Since Andy's remarkable win I have noticed several quite young children out with their tennis rackets so they have already been inspired. “
“Officers have checked all our courts are in good condition and would encourage everyone to enjoy them.”
