Development

Point of Sale System

To improve efficiency in administration and provide better service to members, the club is replacing the cash register in the kiosk area with a modern point of sale system.  The cost of the hardware and software is $5,500, being funded through a grant from the Breakwater Island Casino Community Benefit Fund.  A Melbourne based company (ImPOS Solutions) is currently preparing the system for installation.

Reconstruction of Court 16

A big thank you to the Queensland Government for providing Tennis Townsville with $100k funding through the Get Playing Program for the reconstruction of Court 16!  Four companies tendered for the work and the successful company was Advantage Sports + Leisure.  Work is expected to commence in April 2014, with completion by the end of July 2014.

Resurfacing of 8 Tennis Courts

In late 2013, Courts 2 to 9 at Tennis Townsville were resurfaced by Advantage Sports + Leisure, at a cost of approximately $108k. This was funded through a loan of $50k from Tennis Australia, a rebate from Tennis Australia's National Court Rebate Scheme and the rest was funded by Tennis Townsville.  We would like to thank Tennis Australia for the financial assistance with this project! 

Redeveloped Queens Park Courts

Tennis Townsville secured a grant for $318,568 from the Queensland Government to upgrade four Queens Park tennis courts. Tennis Townsville contributed $103,356 so a total of $421,924 was spent on the project.  The redeveloped courts were officially opened by Mr John Hathaway, MP (Member for Townsville) in June 2013.

  • A wall with a new Entrance sign  
  • A shelter for the entrance
  • A thriving garden to beautify the area
  • A water bubbler has been installed
  • The pathway has been painted
