HAILSHAM Tennis Club is serving up a treat by making improvements to its courts.

Work has started to lay astroturf on the two hard courts on the town’s recreation ground in Western Road.

Members voted for the change at the AGM and the improvements are now well underway.

The old courts were pressure washed before the astroturf, which arrived in a giant carpet-like roll, was laid.

After marking the lines, special sand is spread across the whole court to aid drainage and keep it in place.

Weather permitting, Hailsham Tennis Club expects the courts to be available for use this week.
