Hard work sees hard courts open

Years of hard work by volunteers will pay off when Beaudesert Tennis Club opens their two new hard courts.

Club President Darren Thorpe said the committee have worked toward this for several years.

“The funding has been made up of three grants – the biggest one was the  Federal Government’s Building Better Regions grant through Scott Buchholz’s office. That was $97,000 and we had to match that,” said Darren.

The Club also received funding through Scenic Rim Regional Council and ANZ Hotshots.

Two other courts have also been recently resurfaced. 

“Now we’ve got six great courts!” said Darren.

“We can expand our coaching more, which will hopefully allow us to cater for more players and also increase the number of players we accommodate at our competion days.”

Beaudesert Tennis Club welcomes everyone to the grand opening of the new courts on 18 June.
