Member for Lisa Neville today announced that the Point Lonsdale Tennis Club has received $250,000 funding from the State Governments Community Sports Infrastructure Fund.
The Point Lonsdale Tennis Club is a great club which has been an important part of the Point Lonsdale community since its establishment in 1931, Ms Neville said.
The club is going from strength to strength and currently has over 600 members, she added.
This significant funding will help boost the club by upgrading two courts to artificial grass, add LED lighting and importantly upgrade the ageing clubrooms, including provision for disability access.
I take this opportunity to congratulate the club on not only winning this funding, but for their work in managing what is a much respected club.
I have been proud to have worked with, and supported the club, in gaining this funding and congratulate long time President Ian Britton and all members for their work, Ms Neville said.
In this round of the Community Sports Infrastructure Fund, over 90 projects will be supported across Victoria thanks to a $60 million boost from the Victorian Budget 2018/19.
And in recent years there has been numerous clubs right across the Bellarine that have received much welcomed upgrades from the fund , Ms Neville said.
It’s part of the State Governments commitment to promoting sports and active recreation and encouraging all Victorians to get out there and get active, Ms Neville concluded.
