Major improvements to the tennis courts at the Victoria Pleasure Ground, Uckfield, have moved a step closer.
Once the courts are brought up to scratch, players will need a “fob”, which they will have to pay for.
Agreement in principle has been given by the town council to the project.
A document before councillors said: “At the heart of the proposal is a model to provide sustainable, self-financing public tennis facilities for the residents of Uckfield.”
The revamped courts would be managed by a not-for-profit company.
Councillors were told the courts were deteriorating and that the honesty box system for collecting fees had fallen into “disrepair”.
Once the new system is in place, anyone will be able to book/hire courts, as long as they have purchased a “fob”. At present the courts are used on a “turn up and play” basis with no booking.
A fob system will enable players to make bookings and lift the financial burden of the courts form the town council.
