The historic club is undergoing a major transformation with off-court facilities to be totally revamped, including a new club room and changing facilities.

Improving community facilities

Mr Chester said that the $130,000 grant from the federal government would be spent erecting new fences at the club in Duke Street to stimulate spending and support local jobs in drought-affected areas.

Maffra Lawn Tennis Club is a popular and active local club headed up by a hard-working and effective volunteer committee. The funding will help local groups to improve community facilities while also supporting Gippsland businesses and local jobs.

The funding from the federal government will give a chance to undertake a number of significant projects, so the communities can enjoy the benefits sooner.
