Glen Waverley tennis enthusiasts can now enjoy more court time thanks to six new synthetic grass courts at the Glen Waverley Tennis Club. The new synthetic grass courts replace the Club’s former six red porous courts that required regular watering and struggled with increasing court demand.
I think it’s fantastic that these new courts won’t require regular watering like the old porous courts did. They are also more durable, easy to maintain, and more sustainable, meaning fewer disruptions in between play and offering players more court time.
More court time ensures the club can bolster its teams, development programs, and competitions, and encourage more people to get more active more often through local tennis.
The Liberal Nationals Coalition Government was happy to be able to provide $60,000 towards the project.
However I would also like to acknowledge the City of Monash for contributing $40,000, as well as Glen Waverley Tennis Club themselves who were impressively able to contribute around $100,000 to the project.
The Club has done an exceptional job planning and building for the future as the largest financial contributor to the new courts. Seeing similar efforts from other community groups in the future will hopefully encourage members of the local community to get more involved with local sporting and community groups.
