A NEW inflatable dome roof over tennis courts at the University of York will protect players from the elements and allow them to enjoy tennis throughout the year.
The hard courts at York Sport Centre on the Heslington West campus are available for community and university staff and use by students. Until now, however, play has been limited in winter and unpredictable in summer due to the weather.
With the addition of the new dome, more programmes and events can be run. York Sport at the university plans to increase playing and coaching opportunities and to support local clubs and junior development through recognised Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) programmes and tennis holiday clubs.
