Paul Burstow MP celebrates funding boost at Sutton Churches Tennis Club

May 18, 2012 3:20 PM

Paul Burstow MP today paid a visit to Sutton Churches Tennis Club to see how they are progressing with works funded by a £50,000 funding boost from SITA Trust.

SCTC currently has seven courts, three hard courts and four shale courts. The funding is enabling SCTC to convert two of their shale courts, which are not playable for most of the winter or after heavy rain, to all-weather clay.

The Club's membership secretary and coach Kirsty Garrett said "With over 200 members, almost half of whom are juniors, the new courts will give the club extra playing time and enable more people from the local community to play tennis. This club prides itself in being open to everyone from beginners to league players and offers a warm welcome to all."

Paul Burstow MP said "I congratulate the hard working member of this community tennis club on their fundraising efforts and work to date. The new surfaces are looking great and the £50,000 grant from SITA Trust will benefit a large number of people for years to come".

Pete Sessions of SITA Trust, an environmental funder that has distributed over £87 million through the Landfill Communities Fund added: "We are delighted to be able to support this fantastic grass roots tennis club and urge other community facilities in Sutton to take a look at our website or give us a call to see if a project is eligible"
