Makeover for Camden district tennis courts

Two Camden District Tennis Association courts will be as good as new thanks to a grant from round two of the NSW ATP Cup tennis legacy fund.

The NSW Government, in partnership with Tennis NSW, is investing $2.4 million over three years to ensure community tennis benefits from NSW hosting the ATP Cup at Ken Rosewall Arena.

The state member for Camden Peter Sidgreaves recently announced that Camden District Tennis had received a grant of $15,000 to resurface courts 4 and 5.

“Tennis is extremely popular in our community with interest in the sport growing with the wonderful role models we have in tennis champions Dylan Alcott and Ash Barty,” Mr Sidgreaves said.

“I congratulate Camden District Tennis on their grant and look forward to the legacy this funding will bring to tennis in Camden.’’

The eight-court synthetic grass complex is located centrally in Camden at Onslow Park, adjacent to Camden Showground and the Camden Sports Club.

A clubhouse with enclosed verandah, kitchen and other facilities are available for members to use.

Minister for Sport Natalie Ward said more than $360,000 had been awarded to clubs, associations and councils across NSW for projects that improve facilities and encourage participation.

“The NSW ATP Cup tennis legacy fund is a clean winner for grassroots tennis in NSW,” Mrs Ward said.

“With the world’s best players returning to Sydney in 2022 for the ATP Cup, these projects will encourage girls and boys to pick up a racquet and emulate their heroes on Ken Rosewall Arena.”

Tennis NSW CEO Lawrence Robertson said they are delighted to see the positive response of the tennis family to the NSW ATP Cup tennis legacy fund.

“With more than 50 projects now having benefited from the fund, our sport has been able to leverage more than $3 million of investment into tennis across NSW.”

Round 2 of the NSW ATP Cup tennis legacy fund saw grants of $1,000 – $50,000 available. During Round 1 of the Fund more than $240,000 was awarded to 19 projects valued at $1.52 million.
