Tennis Club's persistence and passion pays off

Over the course of the year the Tennis club has raised funds and worked across the layers of government to raise money to put in four new artificial grass courts. Until today they were $60,000 short of what they needed but Minister James Merlino today announced the State Government would provide $60,000 to enusre there were four new courts. Local landowner, Dennis Hodge, donated some land to allow the project to go ahead.

The announcement was attended by representatives from:

  • State Parliament, Ben Hardman MP
  • Shire Council, Mayor Peter Beales
  • Tennis Club
  • Cricket Club
  • Sports Club
  • Recreation Reserve Committee of Management
  • Land Care
  • Primary School
  • Flowerdale Recovery Committee
  • Hotel
  • CFA
  • Community House

There has been lots of hard work and nervous moments but the persistence shown by all those involved has really paid off. It is a great result.

The tennis club is keen to see membership keep growing and it is a good time to get involved.
