New facilities the envy of the region
Gayndah tennis courts given much-needed upgrade
VISITING tennis clubs will be dazzled with the newfacilities at Gayndah.
Replacing the wooden practice wall at the Gayndah Tennis Club is a newcementwall, along with a renovated kitchen, a new toilet block with five toilets, including a disabled access toilet, and shower with a changing bench top for parents.
Gayndah Tennis Club president Ben Slack said there was just two toilets built with the original clubhouse in the 1950s.
“It was embarrassing really, having the courts here and catering for larger crowds,” he said.
“We now probably have the best facility in the North Burnett.
“We have saved up for a few years and we put in for a grant.”

Slack said the renovations cost about $8500.
“The Department of Sport and Recreation paid 75%,” he said.
The club also had a massive boost to their project when the Cycle Queensland event came to Gayndah earlier this year.
“We catered for lunch and breakfast for about 400 people and made about $3500,” Slack said.
