Following on from the AGM when it was decided that the Club should move ahead towards the investment into Padel Courts as soon as possible, we are delighted to announce that we are now in a position to apply for planning permission to allow us to proceed. Following the planning permission outcome we will seek tenders for the development and construction of the courts.
There has been a huge amount of work from the volunteers on the Development Committee along to get us to this point, for which the management committee are very grateful.
We will continue to provide updates once we have confirmed news on the planning and development stages, which will include drawings and future options etc…
Watch this space!
