TENNIS lovers are in for a treat after Bayswater Tennis Club opened its state-of-the-art clubrooms last Friday.

The original 1930s clubrooms underwent a $1.4 million rebuild and now include a 200-person function suite, players’ lounges, solar panels and an instant hot water system.

President Dan Kerrigan said the clubrooms are just the start of ongoing improvements to the club.

New hard courts for junior coaching are being installed at the end of the summer season.

Another $300,000 in funding, via a Local Jobs, Local People grant, will go towards the redevelopment of the playing courts, floodlights and accessible walkways at the Garratt Road club.

The rebuild was funded by the federal government, tennis club and Bayswater council.

“This is a community sports facility to be proud of, and I very much look forward to seeing the club’s 1000 plus members making the most of its excellent features for many years to come,” said Bayswater mayor Dan Bull.
