The people of Abbey deserve a safe tennis court to play on.
The tennis court on the corner of Newmarket Road and Barnwell Road is poorly maintained, with loose gravel and broken glass, making the court very unsafe to play on. There are holes in the fencing and the lines have faded, making it nearly impossible to safely play a full game on the court.
Abbey is a great place to live, people are very sociable, but the lack of a decent tennis court is very unfair, compared to other parts of the city. People from Abbey have to travel across the city or to surrounding villages to play tennis, which is very hard if you don’t have a car, and hard on the environment if you do.
We, the undersigned, call on Cambridge City Council to commit to upgrading and resurfacing the tennis court on Newmarket Road, making it safe to play on again.
