Ballyclare tennis courts closed

THE tennis courts located off the Mill Road in Sixmile River Park, Ballyclare, have been closed until further notice, Newtownabbey Borough Council has confirmed.

“The closure is a result of an inspection of the play surfaces. The surfaces were found to be unsuitable for play,” a council spokesperson told the Times.

It’s understood that council officers took the decision to close the courts last week on health and safety grounds.

Whether or not the courts are refurbished will be a mater for the council’s Leisure Committee to consider at a future meeting.
