Are the indoor facilities at Westway any good? Decent changing facilities? It's roughly 50 quid for a two hour court booking, which is steep, but it does provide flexibility for occasional users of indoor courts. A pity that a singles court takes up so much space, so is effectively priced at the opportunity cost foregone of a 5-a-side pitch used by 10 people, with the cost spread accordingly.
Have played a fair amount of 5-a-side there, but never tennis.
