Indoor tennis arena?

IF THE Weston Tennis Club has to withdraw from league tennis, one of the main reasons for its existence, and has funds

IF THE Weston Tennis Club has to withdraw from league tennis, one of the main reasons for its existence, and has funds, why not put a planning application in to build an indoor tennis arena for three courts? This would put the club on the tennis map of the district, bring in an increased membership, and even more sponsorship from the Lawn Tennis Association; then the offending flood-lights could be taken down and two all-weather courts left for those players that enjoy the elements during day light.This action may bring objections by residents surrounding the present five courts and even the objector may prefer the present position to having a huge hangar at the bottom of the garden! Already Weston has lost the courts at the Winter Gardens and those at Grove Park and Ashcombe Park are no longer fit for serious tennis. To lose another sporting facility in the town, which does not cost council taxpayers a penny, seems beyond belief. Where I live, street lighting shines into the bedroom windows, so at night curtains are used to keep out the light. There are also two CCTV cameras that can be pointed in our direction. It is suggested anyone who has a problem with light pollution does likewise. We all need to give and take in the interest of community harmony and fair play.NAME AND ADDRESS SUPPLIED
