Brimbank serves up two new courts at Delahey Tennis Club
Two newly reconstructed tennis courts are now open for play at Delahey Tennis Club.
Mayor of Brimbank, Cr Margaret Giudice said the two synthetic grass courts, complete with fencing and LED court lighting were completed earlier this month.
“The reconstruction of these tennis courts started in July. They replace the old courts that were originally built by developers and were experiencing cracking in the slab.
“The works were completed earlier this month and have been handed back over to the Delahey Tennis Club to open up to its 200-plus members and the wider community for training, competition, coaching, social play and school use,” the Mayor said.
The reconstruction of the two tennis courts was funded under Council’s 2016/2017 Capital Works Budget at a cost of about $447,000.
The completion of this project adds to a list of other projects recently undertaken to benefit tennis in Brimbank, including:
