Meeting official requirements
The project included two redeveloped and two new en tout cas courts which meet official requirements for International Tennis Federation tournaments, and eight upgraded courts for club competition.
The clubhouse was extended and refurbished, and seating, pathways, fencing and court lighting were also upgraded. Wellington Shire Council Mayor Ian Bye said the redeveloped facility would be welcomed by tennis players across the region.
"With four courts now meeting international requirements, the hope is now to be able to attract high-level tournaments here to Wellington Shire," Cr Bye said.
Asset for the community
Mayor Ian Bye said, "This is a great asset for the Wellington community and Council thanks the Sale Tennis Club, which was engaged right throughout the process, for its contribution to the redevelopment of this facility."
The redevelopment was made possible through funding by Latrobe Valley Authority, Wellington Shire Council, Tennis Australia, John Leslie Foundation and Sale Tennis Club, and the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.
