Advantage tennis as Hednesford Park nets grant

folder_openCivic & Public Sector, Sports & Leisure

Council parks bosses at Cannock Chase will be hoping for the inspiration of more British success at Wimbledon after refurbishing eight tennis courts as part of a £2million major transformation of Hednesford Park.

Cannock Chase Council (CCC) won a total grant of £2.273million from the Heritage Lottery Fund and the Big Lottery Fund through the Parks for People programme to extend the pavilion, install a state-of-the-art skate park, improve accessibility, enhance conservation areas and restore railings, gates and pillars in both the core play area and at the park’s war memorial.

CCC appointed Ashbourne contractor PM Harris and sports fencing specialist Zaun from Wolverhampton to refurbish four full-size courts and four junior tennis courts as part of the 2019 Hednesford Park master plan since the council stopped charging for the use of the courts as part of its health agenda.

Zaun manufactured, supplied and installed its Duo8 Advantage Tennis fencing in classic moss green and powder coated the gates in a distinctive red specified by the council.

The relationship with Zaun dates back eight years when Zaun first enclosed two courts and provided railings. The two have since worked together on other Cannock Chase sites.

Hednesford Park began as the larger of two pools when Queen Elizabeth I granted a lease in 1588 to Sir Gilbert Wakering for two coal mines and for ‘Hednesford Poole and the Newe Poole’.

Hednesford Park was formally opened in May 1931 in the presence of over 1000 people after a £15,000 project funded by a coal levy to provide a pavilion, two bowling greens, eight hard tennis courts, putting greens and a cricket pitch.
