Pearl Beach Tennis Club is set to benefit from NSW hosting the ATP Cup following the awarding of grants in Round 3 of the NSW ATP Cup Tennis Legacy Fund.
Twenty-four tennis clubs, associations and councils across NSW have shared in more than $347,000 in Round 3, including Pearl Beach Tennis Club, here on the Central Coast.
Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast Adam Crouch said Pearl Beach Tennis Club would receive $12,837 in funding towards a refencing project at the Club.
“The two-court club will benefit greatly from the support, providing a top-notch facility for all to enjoy,” Mr Crouch said.
“The Legacy Fund is improving tennis facilities across the state and enabling more people of all ages and abilities to play tennis.”
Minister for Sport Alister Henskens said in collaboration with Tennis NSW, the NSW ATP Cup Tennis Legacy Fund had invested more than $2.4 million in new programs and facilities across NSW.
“The NSW Government is committed to ensuring our investment in 10 World Cups in 10 years leaves a legacy at all levels of sport across NSW,” Mr Henskens said.
Tennis NSW CEO Darren Simpson said, “The NSW ATP Cup Tennis Legacy Fund has and continues to provide important funds to the sport of tennis in NSW.
“Tennis NSW is proud to have partnered with the Office of Sport to ensure the benefits of hosting the ATP Cup here in Sydney reaches tennis communities across NSW.
“Grassroots tennis will benefit from the outcomes delivered through the successful projects for years to come.”
Grants of $1,000 - $50,000 were available through the Fund with applicants required to make a co-contribution.
