TILLIGERRY Tennis Club is moving ahead in leaps and bounds after a $200,000 cash injection from the State Government and Shire Council.
This has seen a major makeover of the clubhouse, its surrounds and the facilities available to members and the public.
But there’s more!
An extra $16,000 State Government grant has converted the club’s booking, access and payments system to a fully automated one whereby an online function on a mobile phone handles it all.
This, in turn, does away with the need to pick up keys, pay for court hire or to have members of the committee open up the gates.
The club looks forward to yet another year of growth with plans for a practice wall and continuing involvement with Tanilba Bay School’s sporting initiative.
Its home page gives full details of the club and the upgraded system.
Tilligerry Tennis Club is part of the Mallabula sports complex and is located directly behind the Aquatic Centre at the end of Strathmore Rd.
