On the 29th of May, 2003, people from the London Borough of Merton, the All England Lawn Tennis Club and youngsters from everywhere, showed up in Wimbledon Park to see Sue Barker and The Honourable Mayor of Merton, Maxi Martin open the Park's new tennis courts. This was a joint venture between the All England and Merton where the All England provided the funds and Merton provided a concession for the Lawn Tennis Association to mount events on the new courts in Wimbledon Park.
Everybody is a winner with this type of a transaction, particularly young people as the main LTA offering is to give kids a chance to play tennis with some of the best coaches around to help with their game. A really good way to get connected with a tennis ball and enjoy what the game has to offer.
The courts are state-of-the-art astro-turf which are just lovely to play on. Also all of the fencing around the courts has been replaced with new fences, so the whole facility is now world class standard.
Wimbledon Park now has ten astro-turf courts and ten asphalt courts, with the latter being re-laid in 2004/5.
