Plans for a new tennis court dome at Sutton Sports Village have been given the go ahead.

Sutton Council approved the plans, which will see a dome built to cover four existing outdoor tennis courts, on Monday (June 4).

The new addition is part of a £2.3 million makeover to the Sports Village in Rosehill Park.

Plans also include a soft play centre, nursery facilities, and a brand new Better Extreme trampoline park.

Current indoor tennis facilities are to be relocated to the dome to make way for the trampoline park.

It will be an inflatable covering with lighting so the clay courts can be used all year round.

The courts are used by the Sutton Tennis Academy. GLL, which runs the leisure centre, said the dome will be installed by the end of the summer season.

Head coach at the academy Shaun Malcom said: “The STA performance team are looking forward to the opportunity to develop our players on clay

courts 12 months of the year.”

Work on the revamp is underway and the trampoline park, called Better Extreme Sutton, is set to open towards the end of the school summer holidays in August.

The park will include loads of trampolines, a foam pit and assault course.

There will also be an area for toddlers with a monster themed room, a play house and glow room with UV lights.

When the plans were announced in March regional director of GLL Simon Sen said: “We will be doing everything possible to limit disruption and aim to continue our full provision of facilities and programme schedule throughout.

“We thank our customers for their patience and look forward to welcoming them to the new and improved facilities.”
