On Saturday 23 February, Councillor Margaret Rae joined a sporting crowd at the Alexandra Lawn Tennis Club to launch the freshly resurfaced hard courts. 

Councillor Rae said projects like this show just how much can be achieved when we all work together.

“The support from the Victorian Government’s Community Sport Infrastructure Fund which provided $68,000, Murrindindi Shire Council’s contribution of $18,000 and an amazing $10,000 raised by the Alexandra Lawn Tennis Club itself meant that this was a truly collaborative exercise,” Cr Rae said.

“When you combine that with the in-kind contribution of $17,000 from the Club’s sponsors, North Central Construction and Milkcrete, and the project management provided by Council, the outcome is a truly successful project much appreciated by all.

“The hard courts resurfacing project involved improvements to the base concrete slab and drainage infrastructure, as well as removal of the old synthetic surface and replacement with a new synthetic surface. New tennis nets and poles have also been installed.

“The Club is already vibrant with a range of programs on offer and is now well placed to build on its long history,” Cr Rae said.
