Accessible path to tennis court planned

Turn up and play tennis for free at Onchan Park: fully accessible path planned.

There is a full-size, free tennis court at Onchan Park. There is no need to book, it is open all day and the net will stay up all year round. Gedling Borough Council replaced the net and posts in February 2017 after our survey showed a need for this facility. The net has been in place for two summers now and is well used.
If you wish, you can donate to Friends of Onchan Park via PayPal, sending a message that the donation is for the tennis facility. In no way do we expect donations to use the tennis court, however people have asked for a way to donate. Here is the link to donate: Donate to Friends of Onchan Park.
A fully accessible path from a new pedestrian gate near the vehicle access gate will be installed with the MUGA project. More details on this exciting development soon. At the moment the court is not accessible with a wheelchair and pushchair access is difficult as there are steps to navigate.
