Cundletown Tennis Club has received $160,000 in funding for through the NSW Nationals in the state government’s Infrastructure Grants program.
Nationals Member for Myall Lakes, Stephen Bromhead, said this will help the club replace its current courts with new synthetic grass courts that will result in more people picking up a racquet and hitting the court closer to home.
“Cundletown Tennis Club is a growing part of our local community and investing in these facilities will enable local people to exercise, socialise and enjoy sport on their doorstep,” Mr Bromhead said.
Nationals Minister for Hospitality and Racing Kevin Anderson said funding under the Infrastructure Grants program is made possible by the Clubgrants Category 3, which re-invests profits from registered clubs’ gaming machines into community projects.
“The NSW Government is committed to supporting communities and community focused organisations carry out the very important work they do,” Mr Anderson said.
“Since 2015, the NSW Government’s Infrastructure Grants program has provided $91 million, supporting more than 600 not-for-profit projects in sports, recreation, community infrastructure, arts and culture and disaster readiness”
