Moore Park Beach Tennis Club members are ready to give their clubhouse a facelift thanks to a Bundaberg Regional Council community grant.

Secretary Lyn Atkinson said the clubhouse, established in 1990, was in dire need of a refresh having not seen a fresh coat of paint for at least 10 years.

She said members had agreed a new modern look was in store.

“Our facilities have not seen paint for many years and a face lift with a difference will welcome members and newcomers,” Lyn said.

“Thanks to … Council’s grant and our members who are ready to brush and roll!”

The remainder of the tennis club grant money received will be used to install guttering and downpipes on the clubhouse which will alleviate any potential damage to a new carpark to be constructed by Council.

Lyn said an energetic and hardworking management committee along with “always available volunteer members” would see this project to completion which follows a long list of improvements recently made.

Tennis club grant to benefit community

Divisional representative Cr Jason Bartels said the tennis club grant would be put to good use for the benefit of the local community.

“The facilities at the Moore Park Beach Tennis Club are top rate due to the hard work that the tennis club committee puts in to keep them this way,” Cr Bartels said.

“It is great that Bundaberg Regional Council is able to contribute funds towards the cost of further upgrades to this much used and needed community facility.”

Lyn said the not not-for-profit club had 52 financial members with players enjoying the friendly, social contact on tennis days on Monday and Friday mornings and Wednesday nights.

“Our charge is only $10/senior member, $5/juniors, $25/family per year, with $4 fee for social tennis.

“Coaching is available for juniors every Friday afternoon.

“Courts are available for hire with information on the clubhouse wall.”
