Toot Hill School and Bingham Tennis Club celebrated the official opening of the recently resurfaced courts at Toot Hill School.
The jointly-funded project refurbished the disused courts to allow the tennis club and the two local netball clubs to enjoy use of the courts throughout the year and the provision of the flood lighting.
The project also provided extra facilities for the increasing number of pupils attending Toot Hill.
A small clubhouse has also recently been added. The head of Toot Hill School, Mrs Sandy Paley, officially opened the facility by cutting a ribbon to launch the opening.
The ceremony was attended by members of both Bingham and Rushcliffe councils, including the Mayor of Rushcliffe, Mrs Maureen Stockwood, and the Mayor of Bingham, Mrs Jane Costello.
Bingham Town Council has supported the club over many years. The club was founded in the early 1900s and provides social and match tennis, as well as coaching for all ages and family tennis sessions in the summer.
As members of the British Tennis Association, the club is able to provide insurance, a trained welfare officer and a safe environment and is looking forward to sharing these excellent facilities with new members.
