The Queensland Community Lawn Tennis Association based in Morningside will get a funding boost to help it upgrade its tennis facility.
Funding of over $270,000 will be provided by the Queensland government as part of its “Get Playing Places and Spaces” program, which aims to assist local sports clubs to build or upgrade their infrastructure.
The funding is part of the government’s goal to encourage greater participation in sports at the grassroots level.
The government is providing $2 million in funds across Queensland for the construction or upgrade of sport facilities and the Morningside tennis club is one of the three club recipients in the state.
The Morningside Tennis Centre will allocate $100,000 to renovate its four tennis courts.
