Public Tennis Courts

1 courts 091023

Somerset Council and the LTA have worked in partnership to invest in and refurbish the public tennis courts on the recreation ground in Ilminster. All 4 courts on the recreation ground by the cricket club have been renovated, with investment of £72,000 helping to ensure that high quality facilities are available for the local community.

The project is part of a nationwide investment by the UK Government and LTA Tennis Foundation, delivered by the LTA, to refurbish public tennis courts across Great Britain, and open up the sport to many more people.

Public tennis courts are vital in providing opportunities for children and adults to get active, delivering significant physical and mental health and wellbeing benefits to participants. Accessible facilities in parks are particularly critical to opening up the sport to those from lower socioeconomic backgrounds, women and girls.

Information about the gate to the tennis courts:

    (No more than 10 minutes before or after your booked session).
    • Make sure you press the key once then the six-digit code.
  2. What do the tones/sounds mean on the keypad?
