- DRIVEWAY UPDATE #2 -
This week the contractors started on the removal of the existing tennis fencing adjacent to the driveway upgrade works - specifically along the side of court 4 and along the back of courts 4-7.
This work will involve:
1. installing temporary fencing inside the existing fences, to prevent unnecessary access into the work site
This work is expected to take 2-3 weeks. During this period, everyone using courts 4-7 will need to be patient with balls running under/bouncing over the temporary fences.
There is nothing practical that we or the contractor can do, without incurring a lot of cost, to try and reduce the chance of balls getting under/over the temporary fences.
We have agreed with the contractor that space will be left at either end of the temporary fencing along the back of courts 4-7, allowing us to go and collect balls that get through.
Clearly, balls getting past the temporary fencing will be a frustration for interclub matches - but we are only taking 2-3 weeks of incovenience while we are getting a new driveway, with proper drainage, that will last 50 years.
Interclub team managers and captains will need to keep the above in mind when hosting visiting teams.
Many thanks for your co-operation and patience.
PS: A few members have asked me about installing a taller back fence. This was considered, but we are at the maximum height now and would need to apply for a consent to go higher - we did not wish to jeopardise the project with this idea, so the new fencing will be the same height as the existing.
