FINALLY, Ballarat Lawn Tennis Club has a home.
The club has opened its new courts at Prince of Wales Park with a blue synthetic grass surface, designed to be joint and muscle-friendly for older and injured players.
Court surfaces are also suited for outdoor action all year long.
Ballarat High School’s year seven leadership group teamed with the club on landscaping works and tree-planting about the courts.
The club also has modern fences and sheltered courtside seating for players and supporters.
The next development stages for the courts feature the construction of a shelter, storage shed and hitting wall.
A shared clubhouse with neighbour Ballarat Hockey is also planned within the next 12 months.
More plantings of spotted gums and other trees will also be made about the courts.
