YEARS of deterioration had led to the demise of the public tennis facilities in El Campello.
But the council has now completed a project to get the courts up to scratch and usable once again, and is now waiting for the go-ahead for a complete remodelling of the sports centre in El Vincle.
Councillor for Sports, Cristian Palomares (PP), said “The goal is to shape decent facilities that will be able to host various sports disciplines in the future.”
He added that for now, at least, the works carried out have meant the tennis courts have been reopened.
El Campello Mayor, Juanjo Berenguer, gave the courts the once over this week before opening them up to the public.
