Plans for "improvements" to the Westway Sports and Fitness Centre will see an indoor tennis court permanently replaced by a gym.  The tennis program at the Westway has the highest participation and utilisation of any community tennis program in the country.  It is the only public indoor tennis community program within 7 miles.  There are countless gyms in the area including ones 500metres away at the Kensington Leisure Centre, 800m away at the other Westway Sports Club, the Virgin Active and the Anytime Fitness on Ladbroke Grove.  Without consultation with the community the Trust has proposed changes that will replace an oversubscribed, child and youth friendly activity with an adult only gym facility of which there are countless in the neighbourhood.  I believe a creative and thoughtful process involving engagement with our community can yield a much better use of the space at the Westway without harming the popular activities at the Centre (including a better gym if deemed necessary).  We can do more and better if this isn't rushed.
