Work has started on a £220,000 project to transform the tennis courts in Cwmbran Park.

Torfaen Council estimates the work will take around six weeks to complete. The total cost of £221,064.26 has been secured from:

  • Tennis Wales (LTA) £94,316.03
  • Sports Wales £104,275
  • Torafen Council’s Contribution (S106)  £22,473.23

The courts, off Henllys Way, are surrounded by site fencing.

The plan is to refurbish the tennis courts for the sport and include netball and basketball courts.

S106 is money the council has received from developers who have built homes in an area to mitigate the loss of other facilities from new developments.

The extra funding from Sports Wales stipulates the courts must “accommodate additional sports, in this case basketball and netball”.

The Lawn Tennis Association has been given £21.9m from the Department of Culture Media and Sport and an additional £8.4m from the LTA Tennis Foundation to refurbish park tennis courts across the UK by March 2024.
