NEW COMMUNITY COURTS OPENED AT ANSTEY PARK Town Mayor Councillor Derek Gardner has officially opened the new Community Courts at Anstey Park accompanied by the ladies from Alton Ants Netball Club. The courts, which have been marked out for netball, tennis, basketball and football, also feature a two sided ball wall to practice skills as well as a new set of floodlights and a new dug out. Prior to cutting the ribbon, the Mayor said how delighted he was that local residents now have the opportunity to use the superb new public use courts which enhances the variety of free to use recreational facilities offered by the Council across the town and provide local netball Club Alton Ants with much needed outdoor courts. The former courts had fallen into a state of disrepair some years ago but following a public consultation in the summer of 2016 and lobbying by Alton Ants Netball Club the Town Council agreed to allocate over £100,000 of developer contribution funding towards the project with additional grants being secured through District Councillors, Tesco Bags of Help and Hampshire Playing Fields Association. Town Mayor Derek Gardner said “Alton Town Council is very pleased to provide this new facility, complete with new flood lights, for the community. As a town we are very fortunate to have a site such as Anstey Park and this corner of the park, transformed by both this project and the trim trail installed last year forms part of the Council’s overall open spaces strategy to provide residents with more free to use sports facilities to encourage improved health and wellbeing. Judy Talbot from Alton Ants said “We are really pleased that following our campaign the Council have delivered by investing in new tarmacking and outlay and design with a great ball exercise wall and a dug out. The girls are looking forward to using the two courts.” “Alton Red Ants were runners up last season in the Diamond Division with the Black Ants securing runners up spot in Division 2 and promotion to Division 1. The Jumper Ants were third in the 3rd Division having narrowly missed out on the second place but with everything to play for next season. All the girls are there
