Funding and Facilities
A tennis court complex, be it residential, business or local club, involves a significant investment of time, effort and finances. Naturally, everyone involved wants the best return on these investments. It is essential that any facility development is planned, implemented and managed effectively. Defining needs, plans and organisation is important to ensuring a facility project commences successfully. Once this is complete a knowledge of the financial commitment must be defined. With all this in place a good foundation for seeking assistance for both the project and financial investment has been undertaken.
There are a variety of funding options available to clubs who are looking to upgrade their facility. These include
