Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Sport -

HIGGINS Park Ten­nis Club in East Vic­to­ria Park is cel­e­brat­ing its 50th an­niver­sary with a sea­son-open­ing team dou­bles event on Oc­to­ber 11 named the An­niver­sary Cup.

The club will also hold an open day on Oc­to­ber 10 and all are welcome.

“The club is hum­ming at the mo­ment,” club pres­i­dent Tom Leem­ing said.

“We are field­ing 23 pen­nant teams this sum­mer, in­clud­ing a Men’s State League and Ladies Di­vi­sion 1.”

He said the club was work­ing closely with the Town of Vic­to­ria Park in re­gards to its fu­ture plans.

“The cli­mate in Perth is such that we play all year round at Higgins, and even at night dur­ing the win­ter, but to con­tinue to pro­vide that, we need more hard courts,” he said.

He said the club is cur­rently in­ves­ti­gat­ing grant op­tions to fund the pro­ject.

Higgins Park Di­vi­sion 1 womens pen­nant team, Sarah du Plessis, Wendy Kong, Michelle Swan and Tal­lu­lah Grauaug.
