Work is set to start on the new padel tennis courts at Kenilworth Tennis Squash and Croquet Club, the club has today (August 16) announced.
Planning permission for the major development was approved by Warwick District Council for the Crackley Lane club at the end of May.
And the club has now revealed that construction in partnership with Smith Construction and ProPadel will begin soon and be completed by the autumn.
The two padel courts will be built on spare land next to the adjacent tennis courts and will be made available for use on a pay-per-play basis for members and non-members.
The original planning application said: "The installation of two padel courts will bring an exciting new facility to Kenilworth Tennis, Squash & Croquet Club and to Kenilworth and its surrounding areas.
"Facilities will be available to the public with the ultimate goal of increasing overall members.
"It will therefore help establish padel as a new sport in the UK as outlined in the Lawn Tennis Association's padel development plan."
