RAINFORD Tennis Club is celebrating after winning a £50,000 grant from Sport England.

The money, won after help from St Helens Council’s sports development team, will be used to build three new all weather courts.

The funding has been provided under Sport England’s Inspired Facilities fund which is using the Olympic Games legacy to boost sports facilities across the country.

The work will bring the number of courts at the club to six.

The club has 120 members plus more than 300 children who use it as part of the school sports programme and summer camps, and is based on the Jubilee Recreation Ground, Rainford, St.Helens.
