From Liz Graham, Cheadle Hulme:
We have just returned from two weeks’ holiday on the Isle of Wight, which we love. This was our 25th visit and there were 33 of us on a family holiday. 
However, we were saddened there are no longer any tennis courts in West Wight.

We tried the sports centres and holiday villages, such as Warner and West Bay, but could find no court available that could be used by non-residents.

The Lawn Tennis Association is trying to encourage tennis as a sport for all ages so why have the courts in Freshwater been closed? Are there schools locally that would allow one to use them in the holidays?

We were able to use the courts in Newport and played short tennis at Freshwater but feel so sad there is nothing available more locally.
