Local tennis players can celebrate, as two of Moxon Sports Club’s tennis courts have been renovated and resurfaced.
The two tennis courts which included a synthetic court and a hardcourt had deteriorated and were in much need of a restoration.
The renovation and resurfacing of the Tennis Courts was a partnership between the Tony Burke, the Federal Member for Watson on behalf of the NSW Government’s Stronger Communities Program and Canterbury League Club.
$7,200 was provided by Tony Burke and helped pay for the synthetic grass court at Moxon Sports Club.
‘We want these tennis courts played on and enjoyed. We’ve partnered with the Club to make sure that locals can get together, play sport, keep fit and have fun,’ said Tony Burke, Federal Member for Watson.
Canterbury League Club’s contribution was part of the ClubGrants Program.
‘Canterbury League Club noticed the need to upgrade the two tennis courts at Moxon Sports Club for the local sporting community,’ said George Coorey, Chairman of Canterbury League Club.
‘We want the tennis courts to be a place where locals enjoy a social game of tennis or work on their game with a lesson with our onsite coach.’
The Club’s support helped refence the courts and resurface two courts which included a synthetic court and a hard court.
‘Without the financial help and support of the Government and Canterbury League Club, the courts would have deteriorated to the point they would have become unplayable,’ said John Kellert Head Coach of Kellert Tennis Academy.
‘The work that Mr Tony Burke and Canterbury League Club have done, has saved the courts and has allowed us to build a thriving tennis community which is growing daily. It has been an amazing transformation for which I and all the tennis members are extremely grateful.’
Kellert Tennis Academy offers lessons to players from beginners to experts.
