The Southbank Tennis Club is back in business with six freshly repaired, resurfaced and upgraded courts.

Thanks to Tennis Australia’s contribution of $15,000 through the National Court Rebate and the Office for Recreation, Sport and Racing’s contribution of $64,000, through the 2017-18 round of the Community Recreation and Sport Facilities Program.

The total project cost came to $188,000, and with two of the courts also available for community use they are expected to attract plenty of use.

In the club’s words:

“This project will have a profound impact on our future viability on a number of fronts.”

“It’s anticipated that additional revenue will be raised through the commencement of a social night tennis competition later in 2019.”

“Also, we hope to attract new junior and senior members to our club through the new/upgraded courts.”

An Open Day for the club will be held on Sunday 22 September to officially launch the new facility.
