A TENNIS club has received £47,500 from the National Lottery.

Guisborough Tennis secured the Olympic legacy funding from Sport England’s Olympic legacy fund.

The money will be used to resurface three tennis courts and erect new wire netting at the club based at King George V playing fields.

Club Chairwoman, Moira Smith, said: “We are delighted to have finally secured this investment to create a good quality facility for Guisborough. This will help to retain existing members, attract new members, extend the involvement of community groups and further develop the junior coaching programme.
