Labour cries ‘fault’ as figures show nearly 700 public tennis courts have closed under Tories



As Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic prepare to face off on Centre Court in the Wimbledon men’s final, Labour are crying “fault” over the loss of public tennis courts.

New figures obtained by the party from the House of Commons Library show that 677 courts have been closed under Conservative-led governments since 2010.

Tom Watson, deputy leader and shadow culture, media and sport secretary, said the trend must stop if the UK is to nurture a new generation of world-class tennis players to compete in future grand slam tournaments.
