Located within the grounds of Frenchay Cricket Club, at the bottom of the M32, in Bristol, this scheme has been planned to develop a club room for Downend & Frenchay Tennis Club, which relocated to the site in 2015. The club room is needed to support the growing junior & senior memberships along with increasing diversity of tennis opportunities for all ages, abilities, & disabilities. The Club introduced the use of Clubspark both to manage membership, course bookings, & court bookings, & recently added non member Pay & Play options. The project would enable bad weather coaching to take place in the club room, using video technology as a coaching tool, a dry, warm area for visitors & parents to wait, a social area for all members to enjoy, & provide toilets & a small changing facility.
By working with Frenchay Cricket Club, the tennis club have devised a combined ‘off grid’ sustainable foul drainage solution that will serve both clubs.
It is anticipated a Planning Application will be submitted in Autumn 2019 after which time the club will prepare and submit capital funding applications to appropriate funding sources which include South Gloucestershire Council Section 106 funds.
