15 October 2019 10:30 AM

The City of Kalamunda took out the Local Government category at the 2019 WA Tennis Industry Awards for its ongoing backing of the sport on Friday 11 October.

The gong recognises the City’s important role in growing participation, club development and infrastructure planning within the region and its proactive relationship with both Tennis West and Tennis Australia.

City of Kalamunda CEO Rhonda Hardy said the City had proactively supported all five local tennis cubs – Forrestfield;  Kalamunda; Lesmurdie; Range View Park and Maida Vale - for many years.

“This award recognises the City’s ongoing commitment to supporting tennis across our community by ensuring quality facilities are available for new and established enthusiasts,” Ms Hardy said.

“In addition, the City supports local clubs through peppercorn leasing arrangements and our Clubs4Life program.

“We also backed the Range View Park Tennis Club, Tennis West and Tennis Australia to successfully implement the Book-A-Court system at their club.” 

Additionally, the City provides significantly engaged with Tennis West through the Recreational Strategy (Master Plan) for Maida Vale Reserve. Adopted by Council in December 2018, the Master Plan contributes positively to the implementation of the Tennis West Strategic Facilities Plan, providing an agreed shared outcome that can be used when advocating for local, state and federal funding to implement proposed development on the reserve.
