Member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser congratulates Westside Tennis Club on a new facility fast becoming the pride of our local community.
Mr Fraser today joins club members, their hardworking committee and our future tennis stars to officially open the Fit For You Outdoor Gym and Recreation Hub – Building Strength for Life.
Mr Fraser said the NSW Government was delighted to support this outstanding community project with a $48,313 grant.
“I applaud Westside Tennis Club for what it has achieved with this new facility, a fine example of how upgrades to our community spaces and infrastructure brings people together,” Mr Fraser said.
“The project included the construction of an outdoor fitness and recreation hub including fencing, outdoor exercise equipment, an outdoor tennis table and seating areas.
“Many hours of hard work have gone into making this recreation hub a reality. I am sure it will be treasured by our community.”
The funding, provided through Round Three of the NSW Government’s Social Housing Community Improvement Fund (SHCIF), provides one-off grants of up to $50,000 to councils, not-for-profit organisations and private sector organisations to undertake physical improvements in social housing communities, or other areas visited by social housing tenants.
