Letters to the Editor

Tennis plan has overwhelming community support


In response to the rather negative slant put on the topic of the tennis courts in Lamlash by the letters in last week’s Banner, I’d just like to highlight some positive aspects.

What wasn’t mentioned was the fact that due to the bowling club’s financial situation (which is apparently due not only to the short tennis season but also to some players not using the honesty box), the alternative would be to sell the tennis courts and clubhouse to a developer for housing.

I’m sure I speak for many people in saying that an attractive Marine Discovery Centre and two upgraded tennis courts is much preferable. As I understand it, the asset will stay in the community and be planned and run by the community. In addition, it will almost certainly contribute to the economic development of the village and promote a healthy and active lifestyle through both the improved tennis courts and the outdoor programme of activities for children.
