26 Review of the Management of Rowntree Park Tennis Courts pdf icon PDF 111 KB

This report provides options for the future management of Rowntree Park tennis courts.

 

Decision:

Resolved:  That Rowntree Park Tennis Club be granted a three year lease to manage the tennis courts in Rowntree Park.

 

Reason:     To ensure that the tennis courts remain sustainable and continue to provide a quality sports facility for York residents.      

Minutes:

The Executive Member considered a report which provided options for the future management of Rowntree Park tennis courts.

 

It was noted that, in May 2015, an agreement had been reached with the Rowntree Park Tennis Club, in partnership with Tennis For All, to manage the courts on a trial basis for one year.  The Club was now seeking to extend this arrangement with a three-year lease on the courts.

   

The Executive Member considered the following options:

 

Option a:    To grant the Rowntree Park Tennis Club a three year lease

Option b:    Not to grant the club a lease and revert back to day to day management by the Council

 

Referring to the pay and play booking arrangements that would be in place for those wishing to use the courts but who were not members of the tennis club, the Executive Member requested that officers explore the possibility of the Rowntree Cafe collecting payments for those who did not have access to the online payment system that would be in place or providing access to this facility.  It was, however, noted that because of the opening hours of the cafe, this may not always be feasible.1

 

Resolved:  That Rowntree Park Tennis Club be granted a three year lease to manage the tennis courts in Rowntree Park.

 

Reason:     To ensure that the tennis courts remain sustainable and continue to provide a quality sports facility for York residents.
