WREXHAM'S Bellevue Park tennis courts have been officially reopened after a £14,756.66 renovation.

A ceremony attended by local representatives from Wrexham Council, UK Government and the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) was held recently at the refurbished courts.

Through the Parks Tennis Project, the LTA is delivering the biggest ever investment in park tennis facilities across the UK.

Over 1,500 courts have been transformed so far as part of a £30 million investment by the UK Government and LTA Tennis Foundation, which is seeing thousands of existing park tennis courts in poor conditions brought back to life for the benefit of communities.

The three Bellevue Park tennis courts have been repainted, and a new gate system fitted, which will make it easier for members of the public to find, book and get on court.

Alongside the investment, Wrexham Council is also working with the LTA to deliver a range of activities across the park sites.

Park tennis courts are vital in providing opportunities for children and adults to get active, delivering significant physical and mental health and wellbeing benefits to participants.

Accessible facilities in parks are particularly critical to opening up the sport to those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds and women and girls.

Cllr Hugh Jones, Lead Member for Environment said: “Wrexham is well known for its football, but we also have one of the largest indoor and outdoor tennis facilities in the UK, (Wrexham Tennis Centre), that often plays host to international events.  


“We hope that the renovation of the Bellevue park facility will allow even more members of our community to access high quality tennis facilities and get involved with the game.” 

Julie Porter, Chief Operating Officer at the LTA, said: “We are delighted to be working with Wrexham County Borough Council to improve their park tennis facilities and provide more opportunities for anyone to pick up a racket and get active.

"We will also be working closely with Wrexham County Borough Council to ensure that the local community have a range of accessible opportunities to get on court, and open up our sport to many more people.”
