AFTER receiving a $15,000 grant, Higgins Park Tennis Club has had its hard courts resurfaced.
Following an official ceremony on June 9, life and founding club member 81-year-old Brendan Duffy hit the first balls on the new courts with current club champion Abdelwahid Henni who recently joined after relocating his family from Algeria.
Club president Tom Leeming said the Stronger Communities grant and the resurfaced courts were not just an investment in the club but more importantly, the broader community.
“Any member of the public can book and play on these excellent new courts through the online book-a-court program via our website,” he said.
“In addition to our members we have over 400 people including several local schools using these courts via the booking system.”
Swan MLA Steve Irons said he would continue to work to deliver more funding as it was great to work with the team at Higgins Park Tennis Club to deliver the newly resurfaced courts.
