Tennis Courts in Canning Town, East Ham and Stratford will see improvement work on surfaces, nets and fencing start next Monday.

Newham Council also plans to extend playing times with the introduction of floodlights at Lyle and Stratford Parks.

Cabinet member for sports and leisure, Cllr Forhad Hussain, said: “This is a clear indication of our commitment to encourage more poople to get outdoors, play sport, and enjoy what our parks have to offer.

“Playing tennis can help increase people’s aerobic capacity, lower blood pressure and improve strength and flexibility.

“As well as being a great way of keeping fit and healthy, it is also a fantastic way of spending time with friends and families and meeting new people.

“The new membership scheme will help ensure we deliver sustainable high quality tennis facitiites at a price affordable to everyone.”

Once done up, the courts will be bookable online for pay as you play with an option to pay an annual fee of £30 for multiple bookings
