Chairman to attend Mansfield Tennis Club house opening and other events
Nottinghamshire County Council Chairman, Councillor Kevin Rostance, will be attending several events this week.
On Tuesday 22 October, Councillor Kevin Rostance, Chairman of Nottinghamshire County Council will be attending the official opening of Mansfield Tennis Club House at 10.30am. Mansfield Tennis Club is one of Nottinghamshire's oldest sports clubs and the new club house hopes to encourage more local people to take up the sport and benefit from the improved facilities.
The County Council has contributed £50,000 towards the project at Mansfield Lawn Tennis Club, from its Local Improvement Scheme (LIS), with the club meeting the remainder of the costs from its own funds and an interest-free loan from the Lawn Tennis Association.
Councillor Rostance said, “Mansfield Lawn Tennis Club has been a local institution for the last 136 years. I’m delighted to officially open the new club house which will help to encourage even more people to play and secure the club's future for many, many more years to come.”
The Chairman will conclude the week in attending the 38th Worksop Half Marathon on Sunday 27 October. The event attracts in excess of 3,000 runners and is widely supported by the local community. The course starts and finishes at Outwood Academy Portland and then weaves its way in and around the National Trust property of Clumber Park.
Councillor Rostance said: “The Worksop Half Marathon is a great event for Nottinghamshire and I wish all the runners taking part well on their Half Marathon journey.”
