With construction of the new tennis courts now nearing completion, two representatives from Tennis Victoria were on site on Friday 18 February to inspect progress, together with the President of Beechworth Tennis Club. After being closely involved in the planning for development of the new facility at Baarmutha Park, all were excited at the prospect of the courts being available soon for use.
One particularly exciting inclusion is the new Book-a-Court system. This is being installed to streamline the booking process for access to the courts for club members and visitors alike. The Book-a-Court system has been promoted and well supported by Tennis Victoria and it will continue to provide assistance to the local club in implementing it.
The LED lighting has now been erected and the cushioned acrylic surfacing is currently being laid. (Photo shows the rubber underlay being glued to the concrete base)
