TENNIS courts in a Glasgow park are getting a makeover.

More than £161,000 is being invested in the courts at Kelvingrove Park in the West End.

Glasgow Life announced the refurbishment on Friday with works set to begin on Monday, January 23.

The tennis courts will be getting a new 2G synthetic grass surface installed with sand.

A new asphalt base is also being added to help improve drainage and make sure the courts have a consistent bounce.

Wooden kickboards will be fitted to stop balls from rolling under fences.

As part of the refurbishment, parts of the bowing in the fence line will also be repaired.

The refresh is anticipated to run for seven weeks but extreme weather or temperatures may impact the timescales.

Bailie Annette Christie, chair of Glasgow Life, said: “This refresh highlights our commitment to investing in sporting venues and improving people’s lives through sport.

"These are just two reasons why Glasgow is the 2023 European Capital of Sport and the first city to be awarded the accolade for a second time.

“Taking part in sports like tennis is a great way for people of all ages to improve their mental and physical well-being.

"The new and improved courts at Kelvingrove offer the perfect venue for people to get active and experience the life-changing benefits of sport.”
