Wyndham City has served up a winner, with a $450,000 redevelopment of the Little River Tennis Courts now open to the public.
The mammoth project included the removal of the facility’s existing tennis courts and the construction of two new tennis courts with barrier fencing, pathways and landscaping.
Wyndham City Director of City Life, Allison Kenwood, said these works have breathed new life into the courts, which have been the home of the Little River Tennis Club since 1880.
“The previous courts were 25 years old and in a state of disrepair, with cracked and uneven surfaces that resulted in regular closures,” Ms Kenwood said.
“These new concrete courts are better suited to the Little River topography, providing a smooth and sturdy surface with drains to capture water.”
“This will result in reduced court maintenance, in turn giving players more court time.”
Ms Kenwood said the redevelopment had already received the tick of approval from the Little River Tennis Club and would help the club to expand and attract new members.
“This is an asset that tennis players of all skill levels can enjoy, and I’m confident locals will be perfecting their serves here for years to come,” Ms Kenwood said.
