New surface completes Goulburn Tennis Club complex

Sep 20, 2011 by

Goulburn Tennis Club has now completed the upgrading of all ten court surfaces from granite to synthetic grass, a project which has been ongoing for more than two decades. An official opening was held on Sunday September 18 with many club members enjoying lovely Spring weather to celebrate their achievement with a game or two on the new cou

rts and luncheon.

The Goulburn Tennis Club members thanked the Veolia Mulwaree Trust for providing a grant of $24,000 for the final upgrade to be complete. The Club itself had raised over $40,000, a significant achievement for any regional sporting complex. The two courts have already been utilised by members and local school children participating in lessons and sports programs.

Club President, Richard Hailston, said “Goulburn can now promote itself as a fully functional tennis facility to the community, Tennis NSW and Tennis Australia for inclusion in sanctioned events which will benefit the Goulburn district.”

The unsafe granite surface which required significant maintenance and watering has been replaced with a modern, low maintenance surface. These two courts are once again safe and ready to be included in schedule of play for regular competitions, tournaments and are available for the club members and community to use.
