Plans for a new tennis court dome at Sutton Sports Village have been given the go ahead by the council.

Proposals were approved by Sutton Council, which will now see a dome built to cover four existing outdoor tennis courts.

The new addition is part of a £2.3m makeover to the Sports Village in Rosehill Park.

Plans also include a soft play centre, nursery facilities, and a brand new trampoline park.

Current indoor tennis facilities are to be relocated to the dome to make way for the trampoline park.

It will be an inflatable covering with lighting so the clay courts can be used all year round. The courts are used by the Sutton Tennis Academy.
