Horsham District Council launched its first family annual membership scheme for its Horsham Park tennis courts.

Earlier this summer the council introduced a free tennis Friday promotion on July 27.

As part of the promotion, participants who signed up for the membership scheme were entered into a prize draw to win some top tennis prizes.

First place winner was Helen Surley from Horsham who won a Wilson Roger Federer racket and the runner up was Mary Spreadbury from Warnham who won a family tennis pack of rackets and balls.

The annual membership scheme represents extremely good value for money at just £45 a year per family and the initial sign up numbers have been extremely positive.

The Horsham Park courts underwent a successful makeover last year.

Improvements include new fencing, new surfaces, re-marking and a new gate and booking system, ensuring that players can guarantee use of a court at their chosen time.

The introduction of floodlighting allows players to maximise bookings throughout the year, with play continuing into the evening.
