Team doubles to celebrate 50th anniversary
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.
