Federal Nationals Member for Page Kevin Hogan joined with Lismore Tennis Club members to celebrate the opening of the centre’s upgrade.

Mr Hogan said the club has been in its current location for the last 50 years and these upgrades will set the club up for the next 50.

“The upgrade is great news, the tennis club is home to hundreds of players every week, and is now at a standard to host state-wide tournaments,” Mr Hogan said.

“The club needed a little TLC and the Nationals in Government have provided a $200,000 grant as part of the Community Sport Infrastructure program.”

The court upgrades included fence repairs and resurfacing of the courts as well as carrying out electrical works.

“The Nationals in Government are supporting local grassroots sports because we recognise the wider health, social and community benefits that come from participating in sport,” Mr Hogan said.
