The Council say that there are no plans for the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) to manage tennis courts in Lewisham’s parks. The LTA has been working with the Council to find ways of upgrading Lewisham’s tennis courts – “many of which are in a very poor condition”. That includes providing funding towards the capital costs and providing an online platform for making bookings. Management of the courts will continue to be through Glendale. At the moment there are no plans to include Mountsfield Park during the initial phase of the work and no current timetable for future phases.
There will be more information about the management of tennis courts in Lewisham’s parks after a Council meeting with Lewisham Parks Forum 14th September.
