Ulmarra Tennis Club needed to upgrade the surface of the court to make it safer for players. It is an important facility and is used by the whole community.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan announced a $15,000 grant a few years back and recently inspected the finished work.
“Court 2 was a bit old and worn. The Club came to me asking for help to bring it up to date,” Mr Hogan said.
“The new surface will improve playing conditions and also attract new members.”
“It is important to promote the social and health benefits of physical activity and sport. This upgrade provides encouragement for community members to get active.”
“The resurfaced court will be utilised by Clarence Social Tennis Group’s Saturday afternoon comp with teams from Junction Hill, Waterview Heights and Coutts Crossing.”
“Tennis is a great opportunity for people of all ages to build friendships, be active and be part of the local community.”
