Watsonia Tennis Club is set for a major upgrade to its facilities, thanks to the North East Community Fund.
The Fund will contribute $91,000 to the tennis club, which will be used to create a new accessible entrance to the clubrooms and toilets, install ramps, upgrade pathways, and create an accessible area for community BBQs and club events.
The upgrades will allow everyone to access the club’s existing hardcourts – which are some of the only tennis courts in the area that are a suitable surface for wheelchairs.
The upgrades are all about being more inclusive and allowing everyone to play tennis.
Club President Danny Hadjiantonakis says the club is committed to helping everyone in the community enjoy the benefits of tennis.
Club Member Greg Bakopoulos says the upgrades will be fantastic for people who want to try wheelchair tennis.
