Work on a new tennis centre in Shropshire is under way and work on another sports centre is due to start shortly.
The work is part of a regeneration plan scheduled for towns in the Telford and Wrekin area.
A new eight-court community tennis centre is being built at Oakengates Leisure Centre.
Construction will start later this month on a new sports and learning centre at Paddock Mount, Dawley.
Work to level the Dawley site is expected to last a few months with the next part of the programme due to start in October 2011.
