I was approached by David Mandley, one of the board members at Alsager Lawn Tennis Club, as they had been successful in being awarded a lottery grant for a new tennis club. Now for myself, this was an exciting project as, being a junior member at the club, I had fond memories there. One being that of the old, dilapidated clubhouse that was vandalised and eventually burnt down. Unfortunately, due to funds, this was then replaced by two very unsightly porter cabins. My brief was simple, create a cost effective, attractive working tennis club for all year round purposes, with a good viewing area out to the court.
