Irvine: Tennis club’s takeover of Thornhouse Avenue courts approved

The Irwin Tennis Club will now take control of the city courts after an application for the transfer of public assets has been agreed.

Cabinet approves Irwin Tennis Club plans to transfer £ 1130 to Thornhouse Avenue [one percent of the property valuation] yesterday.

Last year, we reported on how the Irwin Tennis Club was formed with plans to transfer public assets – in order to offer functional tennis courts, improve fitness and well-being, offer training to children.

The documents of the meeting say: “During the summer of 2021, the club carried out the work necessary to bring the courts into play. This provided an opportunity to communicate with the local community.

“An online survey was conducted, the results of which showed great support for the club’s efforts to acquire courts. In addition, several offers of support were received from the local community, which wants to volunteer. ”

Speaking to the Times last year, Irwin Tennis Club chairman Chris McKenna said: “We are looking to transfer community assets, but it will take some time, but we are trying to clear the courts so they can play and start to bring the groups back there.

“I have been in contact with the Council of North Ayrshire and Tennis Scotland, and several of Irwin’s advisers have also been very supportive.

“I hope it doesn’t take too long. We are trying to bring it to a decent level, then it would be good to build a small club house and shelter.

“We will look for members and look for sponsorship.”
