About this project

The scope of this exciting project includes four new courts that have cushioned acrylic surfacing constructed on a concrete base. It also provides for site preparation, court fencing, and competition standard low level LED lighting. The siting of the courts requires re-alignment of the access road and provides for the construction of additional parking spaces.

The Victorian Government is providing a grant of $250,000 from the Local Sport Infrastructure 2020-21 – Community Facilities program, the Beechworth Lawn Tennis Club is contributing $800,000 and $35,000 will be provided by Council.

Why is this project being undertaken?

The Beechworth Tennis Club had been operating from its previous location for 83 years and are looking to encourage more participation for all ages.  The decision to build a brand new facility at Baarmutha Park will provide continuing economic and social benefits to our community.  This important development, will create increased participation in tennis by providing a competition grade, compliant facility. The project will enhance the amenity of Baarmutha Park for the local community and the broader region to enjoy.
