The Tumut Lawn Tennis Club are over the moon after the announcement of $87,000 in State Government funding to resurface three of the club’s courts on Tuesday.

Tumut Lawn Tennis Club president John Piper said the money meant a great deal to the club.

“We will end up with nine synthetic grass courts plus four hot shots courts,” he said.

“This will increase the possibility of hosting tournaments, including junior tournaments, like the JDS (Junior Development Series).”

Also announced at the time was $22,923 for the upgrade of facilities at Thomas Boyd Trackhead.

Trackhead spokesperson Lola Green said she was very happy with the grant.

“It will provide us with shelters over four of the table settings, and a cement path linking wheelchair facilities.”

Mrs Taylor said she was excited about the great potential of these projects to enhance the lives of people living in Tumut.

“These funds are to make our towns more liveable; facilities like these are so important to the fabric of our communities,” she said.
