Tennis courts in Llandaff North are being urgently repaired ahead of the summer holidays after residents and a local MP criticised the state of them.
The courts at Hailey Park were suffering from cracks in the tarmac and were declared ‘unsafe’ due to large potholes.
Cardiff North MP, Jonathan Evans, had written to Councillor Nigel Howells, responsible for sport, leisure and culture, to demand action.
Mr Evans said: “I hope the Hailey Park courts are back in use before too long as my wife and I frequently used them over 20 years ago!”
Local resident Dan Allsobrook took the photo above and the others in this Flickr set while cycling past on the way home from work after being stunned by the state of the tennis courts.
Coun Howells tweeted yesterday that work had started on repairing the tennis courts and they hoped to complete by July 23rd.
This follows the story where one resident found they couldn’t play tennis at Heath Park before 12 NOON due to budget cuts.
