Work to build new tennis courts will begin as part of the next stage of the Kingsway to the Sea project.

Six new courts will be built on the site of existing courts near Langdale Gardens in Hove as part of the project to revitalise the seaside park area.

The works will also include a new wheeled sports area and a new tennis pavilion.

Brighton and Hove City Councillor Julie Cattell said: “Kingsway to the Sea is creating excellent new sports facilities for our residents and visitors to enjoy. The new tennis pavilion and courts will provide a great base for a traditionally popular game.

“The padel tennis courts will significantly increase opportunities to play one of the fastest growing sports in the UK.”

The next stage of works, beginning later today, will also see new padel tennis courts being built to provide a space for “one of the fastest growing sports in the UK”.

A council spokesman said that the project would also benefit from an additional £1 million to go into facilities that would have previously been scaled back.

Kingsway to the Sea will also include a rollerblading area as well as a bike pump track.
