A REPLACEMENT for Bayswater Tennis Club’s dinky clubhouse has taken another step forward, with the local council approving the new designs.
In March Bayswater council approved a $450,000 top-up to the $150,000 it had already reserved for the new clubhouse, with an additional $750,000 coming from the federal government and $50,000 from the club.
Although the new clubhouse will be roughly a metre above what’s allowed in the planning rules, council staff say it’s well set back from the street, and no one has complained.
The new building will include a players’ lounge, office/pro shop, toilets and a small bar and kitchen servery downstairs, and a function room with full kitchen upstairs.
Demolition of the old clubhouse is expected to start next month.
