Tennis court improvements at Traralgon

Six tennis courts will be resurfaced at the Traralgon tennis courts complex to improve the quality of the playing surface.

Traralgon is host to two major international tournaments each year, as well as other major events like the current Schnitz Elite competition and many club competitions.

The Traralgon Tennis Association has a total of 26 courts, including Plexicushion and classic clay courts, with 20 under LED lighting.

Courts 19 to 24 will be resurfaced and made safer for training and competition purposes.

The Association will receive $56,000 in funding from the Federal Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure program, with the upgrade to be administered by Latrobe City Council.

“The current condition of these six courts is not appropriate to play on and puts the safety of players at risk,” according to Gippsland federal MP, Darren Chester.

Association Manager Susie Grumley said the upgrades will improve facilities for local players.

“We have some exceptionally talented tennis players in our community, and we want to continue to provide them with high quality playing facilities,” Mrs Grumley said.

“Upgrading the playing surface creates a safer environment for players and means we can have more matches or training happening at the same time.

“This also benefits the local community with many participating in our night tennis competitions, our junior competitions and as a venue for our international events.
