Comedian Tony Hawks, co-founder of Tennis for Free and a friend to LTL, wants tennis courts to be free for all under 16s if no one else is using them:
"An empty court serves nobody,” runs his slogan. His reasons:
- The obesity crisis
- The NHS is on its knees
- Young people are spending too much time looking at screens
- Empty courts provide no revenue to councils.
He is sending a petition to James Brockenshire, the Secretary of State for local government. If you agree with him, you can lend your support and sign up at here.
