Delahey Tennis Club is ready for another big summer, following the re-opening of two reconstructed courts recently.
The two synthetic grass courts were refurbished at a cost of $447,000, as part of the council’s funding boost for the sport across the municipality.
Brimbank mayor Margaret Giudice said the courts and additional LED lighting were ready for use.
“The reconstruction of these tennis courts started in July. They replace the old courts that were originally built by developers and were experiencing cracking in the slab,” Cr Giudice said.
“The works were completed earlier this month and have been handed back over to the Delahey Tennis Club to open up to its 200-plus members and the wider community for training, competition, coaching, social play and school use.”
The investment comes on the back of similar resurfacing works at Sydenham and Taylors Lakes tennis clubs and new lighting at Taylors Lakes, which have been completed in the past 12 months.
The council has also unveiled plans for two court conversions at Keilor Park Tennis Club, four new courts at Errington Reserve, and a new pavilion at Errington Reserve to house the tennis club, all of which are expected to take place in the 2018-19 budget year.
Brimbank council won the Tennis Victoria Local Government Award for the second year running earlier this year.
