BOOKABLE TENNIS COURTS AT THORPE ASTLEY

The Town Council has been working with the Lawn Tennis Association to consider ways to encourage and expand the use of the tennis courts for local residents and has now introduced a system whereby residents can book and pay for the use of the tennis courts at Thorpe Astley.

Braunstone Town residents will be paying a reduced price for the facilities and have the advantage of accessing the courts free of charge at set times. Several membership options are also available including monthly and yearly fees and spreading the cost of payment, free use for residents on specific benefits and reduced rates for pay and play.

Non-Braunstone Town residents will be paying a higher rate and will not be offered the use of the courts free of charge or monthly/yearly package options.
