Joint release with:

Arthur Sinodinos

Senator for New South Wales

  • The Wyong Tennis Centre upgrade has been successfully completed
  • Project includes improving synthetic grass and re-fencing courts
  • The Coalition Government invested $75,000 in the project

There was a large ‘racquet’ today at the Wyong Tennis Centre to mark the completion of upgrades which will help the region draw larger tournaments and expand its membership, which is the latest election commitment delivered by the Coalition Government in Dobell.

Minister for Infrastructure and Transport Darren Chester said the upgrade of two synthetic grass courts and re-fencing of four more will allow the club to grow and support more players.

“The club is regularly used for state and local tennis competitions, which brings a lot of people into Wyong, and delivers economic opportunities to the Central Coast region,” Mr Chester said.

“A larger tennis centre means bigger competitions which improves participation across the region and promotes healthy living.”

Senator for New South Wales Arthur Sinodinos said tennis has long been an institution of the area, being played at these courts and at Baker Park across the road since 1919.

“The club itself has more than 350 members, with about 400 people in the community using these courts each week,” Senator Sinodinos said.

“The Australian Government is proud to promote sport in regional communities—the ball is now in their court.”

The Coalition Government invested $75,000 in the Wyong Tennis Centre, with the Wyong Tennis Association providing the remaining $7,547.
