Witta Tennis Club hosted a Court Re-Opening Celebration on Sunday May 28. They have been fortunate enough to receive a grant from the Gambling Community Benefit Fund for nearly $99,000 to resurface three tennis courts. This grant along with an injection of club savings results in Witta now having state-of-the-art tennis facilities.
The new court playing surfaces along with LED lighting, upgraded fencing and clubhouse extension, makes the club one of best centres in South-East Queensland.
Andrew Powell MP, Councillor Winston Johnston, Tennis Queensland, local sporting associations, sponsors and club contractors were in attendance for the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, along with past and present members.
The Witta Tennis Club President, Mike Hooley acknowledged the hard work and support of the committee, club members and our community. Mike has been instrumental and pro-active to ensure the longevity of Witta Tennis Club.
This was a celebration for Witta Tennis, especially in these times where many sporting clubs are struggling for members and financial stability – the club members are very grateful.
