It’s advantage Thornlie Tennis Club members, with six new courts to be opened this week.

The $1.2 million City of Gosnells project was part-funded by the State Government and replaced three ageing courts with six new courts, complete with LED floodlighting, fencing, landscaping and irrigation.

Mayor Terresa Lynes said the Thornlie Tennis Club had outgrown its previous facilities, particularly for their strong junior tennis program.

“The new courts, new club rooms at the recently completed Thornlie Park Centre and six more existing courts on site will allow the Thornlie Tennis Club to expand to a district level centre,” she said.

“The standard of lighting will allow pennant matches to be played after dark, and the court markings have been designed to accommodate the club’s junior program as well as senior matches.

“This means community members of all ages will have better access to tennis and all the benefits of exercise and being part of a community group.

“Local residents can take a closer look at the new courts at Thornlie Tennis Club’s open day this Saturday 11 March, from 9am to 1pm.”

The State Government contributed $150,000 to the project, through its Community Sport and Recreation Facility Fund, with the City providing $1.05 million.
