Sports courts in Abbots Langley open following council investment

The sports courts in Manor House Grounds, Abbots Langley, are now open to the public following a significant refurbishment thanks to investment from Three Rivers District Council, Abbots Langley Parish Council, YC Hertfordshire (new name for Youth Connexions), Watford Community Housing Trust and the newly formed Abbots Langley Tennis Club.

The area now features a purpose-built MUGA together with a relaxed seating area, two table tennis tables and covered sail. There are also three full-size tennis courts and a small clubhouse for Abbots Langley Tennis Club, who will run a comprehensive coaching programme for children, young people and adults.

Chairman of Three Rivers, Councillor Phil Williams, was on hand to open the courts and said: “I am a huge advocate and passionate about community sport and following the investment from TRDC and its partners it’s great to be able to open this facility up to the public. The new courts look fantastic, and I’m excited to see them be used again.”

Brenda Kersey, Chairman of Abbots Langley Parish Council, added: “The Manor House playing fields are a huge asset for the whole Parish, and it is satisfying to see the facilities brought bang up to date.  We already have the new play area.  Today we add these excellent tennis courts and multi-use games area, and we have a splendid new skate park to follow.  All the improvements will attract more residents of all age groups to the park, contributing to their health and wellbeing.”
