Latrobe City Council’s mayor, Councillor Kellie O’Callaghan, said she was confident the upgraded facilities would boost membership for the club as well as generating local community pride.

"The project consists of construction of 10 new plexi-pave courts with new lighting and fencing. Once completed, it will provide Moe Tennis Club members and visiting players with a new and improved facility that will reflect well on the club, the community and the region. Delivery of quality amenities is a key element of our civil works program.

"In terms of progress on the project, the concrete pavement for all the courts was completed at the end of January and the application of the acrylic plexi-pave surfacing has started. Fencing around the new courts, along with access gates is almost complete. The new LED lighting system has also been installed and is now powered up ready for use," Cr O’Callaghan said.

"The project has been impacted by some extremes in weather and also due to the existing poor pavement conditions. We have experienced some minor delays but we are now tracking well towards a completion date of early April.

"The club has been fully involved with the project and members are excited by the prospect of playing on the new courts. Tennis has a high participation rate in our region and we are confident this project will increase membership at the Moe Tennis Club.

"We are always delighted to be able to work collaboratively with community organisations to deliver projects of this kind," Cr O’Callaghan concluded.
