The Junee Tennis Club will soon be constructing new toilet facilities thanks to an investment from the NSW Government.

Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke has announced a $20,000 grant from the Community Building Partnership which will build new toilets attached to the existing clubhouse.

Ms Cooke said the grant was a boost for the club.

“This investment in facilities will create much-needed improvements at the Junee Tennis Club and will mean more people than ever can enjoy this great sport,” Ms Cooke said.

“The Community Building Partnerships program is focused on helping our great community organisations grow and thrive, and with the challenges all our sporting clubs faced in 2020 this is a timely grant.”

“Well done to the club and congratulations on securing these important new facilities.”

Andrew Lawford from the Junee Tennis Club said he was extremely pleased to be able to undertake the upgrades.

“This grant means we will be able to have modern, safe and nice toilet facilities, the existing ones are dilapidated and upgrading these will help us move forward as a club,” Mr Lawford.

“This is wonderful and an enormous help for the club. With everything last year we had to stop competitions until the spring. We look forward to a bit more tennis this year and these nice new toilets.”
