Community Sports Courts have opened in Alton

Alton mayor Derek Gardner has officially opened community sports courts in Anstey Park...

The courts, which have been marked out for netball, tennis, basketball and football, also feature a two-sided ball wall to practice skills. It is a facility that enhances the variety of free recreational facilities offered by Alton Town Council while providing Alton Ants Netball Club with much-needed outdoor courts.

Before cutting the ribbon, the mayor said how delighted he was that “residents now have the opportunity to use the superb courts”.

He Continues, “As a town, we are very fortunate to have a site such as Anstey Park. It has now been transformed by both this project and the trim trail installed last year. It is these projects that provide residents with more free-to-use sports facilities and encourages improved health and wellbeing.”

Judy Talbot, netball coach of Ants Netball Club, Alton, states: “We are pleased that following our campaign the council has created the great courts. The girls are looking forward to using the courts in the future.”

She continued:

 “The club also secured new sponsorship last winter from Ski Autos in Aldershot and from The Poacher Inn in South Warnborough, so it’s exciting times ahead!”
