Preparation for the upgrade of the Montville Tennis Club, courts and other facilities is progressing but as with similar projects, the lead time and documentation is significant – following the formal approval of incorporation on 7 September 2018, we now have affiliation with the Australian Sports Foundation so that individuals can make a tax deductible gift to the club’s rejuvenation project. The club also now has an ABN, a tax file number and a bank account. Since our last update, grant applications have been prepared and are underway – no outcome yet on those. The first priority for expenditure is the upgrade of the old ant-bed court and then the existing court, hoping to keep one court functioning throughout – we are looking at around $80,000 total cost for this.

Stay tuned for the new website which is now under development which will provide information about the courts, bookings, the club and membership.
