With the first week of Wimbledon almost done, we’re being urged to pick up a racket and test our own skills.

47 tennis courts at 11 venues across Merton have benefited from a £1million upgrade over the last few months.

The programme has been managed by the LTA, and funded by the previous Government, the LTA Tennis Foundation and the council.

Those which benefitted include Cottenham Park, Morden Park and Oakleigh Way Recreation Ground.
