ST Michael’s Hotel and Spa has re-opened Gyllyngvase Tennis Courts following a £40,000 renovation, having taken over the lease from Cornwall Council in 2012.
Recent improvements made to the facility include refurbishing of the netting, fencing and the four playing surfaces. CCTV has been installed and floodlighting will be the next stage in the developments.
Owner of St Michael’s Hotel and Spa Nigel Carpenter said: “I would love to see the whole of Falmouth celebrating Wimbledon fortnight by playing on the four new tennis courts at Gyllyngvase. Perhaps we have some Andy Murrays of the future within our own community.
“We were delighted to take over the running of the tennis courts at Gyllyngvase Beach last winter. The courts needed fresh investment and impetus and we are pleased that Cornwall Council has chosen to lease them out to an us as an enthusiastic new partner.”
