Meadows tennis courts upgrade?

The Meadows has 16 tennis courts at the Boroughloch end. They are owned by Edinburgh Council and managed by the Council's arms length organisation Edinburgh Leisure. The members club has 8 junior and three adult teams

In conjunction with the Tennis Foundation, Edinburgh Leisure is exploring upgrading this well used facility. The project is in its early stages and the following are among the features being considered:

  • better lighting
  • opening later in the evening
  • upgrading the pavilion
  • providing refreshments
  • creating an on site equipment store

Edinburgh Leisure will welcome views.

Hi
We run a local tennis league on the Meadows courts and support this initiative. It would great to get floodlights to allow play to continue in the winter evenings. Anyone interested in the Meadows Tennis League please see www.localtennisleagues.com/meadows

would it not be better to reduce the cost of play here?
The cafe at the site is a much welcome boost. Maybe more benches around the court would be a good idea too?
