A grant from the Lawn Tennis Association has helped towards the project.

The City of Peterborough Sports Club will be welcoming a third tennis air dome as the latest addition to its facilities at Bretton Gate following planning approval.

The dome will be located next to the existing two, adjacent to the cricket field, and has been gifted to the club by the All England Lawn Tennis Club.

It will be around a metre and a half smaller than the existing two, standing at a height of 8m, as well as being 9.5m long and 17.65m wide but have the same exterior green and white appearance.

The building of the court inside and the construction costs of the dome are being financed by fundraising, local grants and an Lawn Tennis Association loan.

The new development will create a semi-permanent indoor facility to play tennis in all weather conditions.

The sports club at Cavell Close, next to Peterborough City Hospital, already houses a hockey pitch, clubhouse, bowling green, cricket pitch and nets, outdoor tennis courts and two tennis domes.
