La­bor makes pledge to fund ten­nis club

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

WA La­bor has promised $100,000 to up­grade Hig­gins Park Ten­nis Club in East Vic­to­ria Park if elected.

The pro­posed fund­ing in­cludes the in­stal­la­tion of four new flood­lit hard courts.

Club pres­i­dent Tom Leem­ing said he was de­lighted by the com­mit­ment.

“Fund­ing to in­stall four flood­lit hard courts is a game-changer for the club and will un­der­pin our abil­ity to serve the Vic­to­ria Park com­mu­nity for an­other 50 years,” he said.

“The new courts will also al­low us to work with more schools and fam­i­lies to get more kids ac­tive.

“Our cur­rent flood­lit courts are fully used ev­ery week­day evening, mean­ing we of­ten have to turn peo­ple away.”
