Show­ground tennis courts on the move

Wanneroo Times - - Wanneroo Link -

The com­mu­nity tennis courts at the Wan­neroo Show­grounds are to be re­lo­cated. The courts, which can be ac­cessed for free by ca­sual and recre­ational users, will be moved to the site of the old skate park. Re­pair­ing ‘puff ball’ dam­age by re-sur­fac­ing the ex­ist­ing courts does not rep­re­sent value for money, as tree roots will con­tinue to cause sur­face crack­ing. The re­lo­ca­tion op­tion, costed at $154,000, re­mains within the al­lo­cated bud­get. The new courts will be con­structed over the as­phalt hard stand of the old skate park, which has no sign of en­croach­ing tree roots. The de­sign also takes into ac­count the re­quire­ments of the Wan­neroo Agri­cul­tural So­ci­ety and other users of the Show­grounds. The old courts site will be re­ha­bil­i­tated, in­clud­ing sur­face re­moval fol­lowed by land­scap­ing.
