Three new tennis court surfaces at Crookwell

May 21, 2012 by

For four years members of the Crookwell and District Tennis Association have been working towards replacing the badly worn, split and untrue surface of their courts. Their total project cost of $65,000, to resurface three of the courts recently, was partly funded by a grant of $27,000 from the Veolia Mulwaree Trust.

The aim of the association is to promote the game of tennis as a means of physical and social activity to all ages wit

hin the community, providing a safe and reliable facility for the enjoyment of all community members. With the upgrade of the surface the committee is looking forward to renewed interest in tennis in the district with greater use of the facility.

Geoffrey Palmer, President of the Crookwell and District Tennis Association, said the tennis courts were coming apart at the seams and on lines creating areas of uneven surface with areas lifting and creating trip hazards. The courts were getting to the stage where the committee would have had to close the courts.

“The new surface will now allow a true and safe playing surface which community members of all ages will be able to use for many years to come,” Mr Palmer said.
