New tennis courts for Rouken Glen Park

£80,000 investment to enhance greenspace

Tennis courts rouken glen

Residents in East Renfrewshire will soon be able to channel their inner Andy Murray when visiting Rouken Glen Park after work began to build tennis courts within the much-loved greenspace.

The £80,000 investment from the Council will deliver two public courts to further enhance the park and offer opportunities for residents to get involved in sport.

It is expected that the new courts, which are being built next to the skate park, will be completed by the summer.

I'm delighted to see work now under way to build these additional facilities in Rouken Glen. We already have tennis courts in Cowan Park in Barrhead and so it's fantastic that we can now offer residents across the area the opportunity to access public tennis courts. And who knows it might just help us unearth the next Andy Murray. Council Leader Tony Buchanan

Rouken Glen is already the jewel in East Renfrewshire's crown and people flock from far and wide to enjoy our fantastic park. This was highlighted when we were crowned as UKs best park, with so many people holding such a close affinity with Rouken Glen. So creating two tennis courts will be a fabulous addition and builds on the recent £3m investment to create a new playpark, refurbish the visitor centre and redevelop the walled garden. I'm looking forward to seeing the courts up and running in the summer, and hopefully we get a bit of sunshine so that our residents can take full advantage of this new facility. Councillor Alan Lafferty, Convener for Environment

The investment is being made by the Council to replace the two courts which previously existed in Stamperland, prior to the land being sold by the owners for development.
