Commuted Sums help Driffield Lawn Tennis Club

Driffield Lawn Tennis Club have completed the cleaning and repainting of their hard courts, using £6,080.13 awarded by East Riding of Yorkshire Council as part of Commuted Sums from local housing developments.

 Driffield Lawn Tennis Club also contributed £675.57 from their own funds towards the £6,755.70 total project cost.

The completed works have seen the courts cleaned and repainted with an acrylic, environmentally safe binder coat to hold the courts together. This was done in green around the perimeter of the courts, with a blue playing surface.

Ian Reed, Chairman of Driffield Lawn Tennis Club, said: "The new courts are absolutely fantastic to play on. They also make such a difference to the look and feel of the Club that everyone seems to be smiling more when playing!

"We could not be more grateful to Lea Anne Wright and her team at East Riding of Yorkshire Council for their support to make this happen. I'm sure having such amazing courts will also help our member numbers to keep growing."

Councillor Leo Hammond, Cabinet member for planning, communities and public protection, added: "Once again, Commuted Sums from local housing developments as a condition of their planning approval are making a real difference to local sports facilities in the East Riding. I wish Driffield Lawn Tennis Club every success in the future."
