Gavin visits Wombourne Tennis Club

Gavin Williamson, MP for South Staffordshire, had an update on recent improvements

The club, which has existed for over fifty years, is part of the Wombourne Cricket, Tennis & Bowling Club in the centre of the village. The committee was very pleased to announce that they have recently installed two new all-weather courts, part of a £27,000 revamp. The courts will be officially unveiled at the Open Day on April 14th, an event which is open to the public.

Commenting on the visit, Gavin said: " Wombourne Cricket, Tennis & Bowls Club is a real asset that benefits the whole community and something that we can be really proud of - a first-rate facility in South Staffordshire. I was really impressed to hear that the Tennis Club has two new all-weather courts installed as a result of a £27,000 revamp. The official opening event for the courts will be held on the 14th April and all members of the public are welcome to attend".
