"Scrap The National Tennis Centre"
Times tennis correspondent proposes closure will save British tennis
When the Queen opened the National Tennis Centre on Bank Lane on a drizzly day in March three years ago the mood was up beat and looking to success from the tennis players of today and tomorrow but match results have proved this untrue.
This week in The Times Neil Harman has proposed a seven step plan to "turn the sport around" - the first being "Scrap the National Tennis Centre" - he agrees with Judy Murray that the £40 million spent on the centre here in SW15 should have been spent on forty £1 million centres around the UK.
