Melville Tennis Centre Upgrade

The Melville Palmyra Tennis Club has just completed a series of projects aimed at upgrading the Melville Tennis Centre facilities to a very high standard. Its five hard courts have been resurfaced with Rebound Pro cushioned acrylic material which makes them the best local courts available.

For the very young players, a “Hot Shots” mini court has also been installed which will be used by the Club Coach. The courts are two tone blue, similar to those used for the Australian Open. The resurfacing of the courts cost over $50,000. Tennis Australia has agreed to reimburse about one third of this cost and the City of Melville provided a grant towards the projects. The Tennis Club met the major part of the cost.

In addition to the upgrade of the courts, the club installed three additional shade sails. Healthway assisted with a grant towards the cost of the shade sails. The club now has five shade sails which provide protection from the sun for spectators.

The upgraded Tennis Centre will serve the community well as the courts are available for hire by the public. The club also has nine excellent grass courts which are also available for hire. The club is offering a substantially reduced membership fee for potential new members.
