The Cootamundra Tennis Club is looking forward to the completion of an upgrade to the playing surfaces of six courts.
Two courts have been adapted for multi-purpose use for juniors, seniors and potentially for rehabilitation.
Club president Garrie Cooper said it would attract more tennis tournaments.
“It means state-level events can be hosted here in Cootamundra,” Mr Cooper said.
There’s three weekly local competitions being played and Mr Cooper said the new courts would attract more.
Students playing in the Todd Woodbridge Cup will be the first tournament to be hosted before an intertown competition begins in August.
Mr Cooper said Riverina Sporting Services were completing the work on the last two courts this week.
As well as new surfaces a spectator and pedestrian access has been created, it links the car park at the sports stadium to the car park by the netball courts.
An upgrade to the clubhouse is also under way which will allow the club to host functions and provide catering for tournaments.
The funding for the courts is $200,000 which includes a state government Stronger Country Communities Fund grant of $150,000 with Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council adding $60,000.
"It's a wonderful project, and will encourage juniors and seniors alike to either take up tennis as a sport or continue to grow their tennis experience,” council’s deputy mayor Dennis Palmer said.
Cootamundra can be proud of all our sporting facilities, they are all first class.”
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said the benefits of the project went beyond fitness.
“Companionship for older members, fostering friendships and social interaction for youngsters, as well as the economic benefits to Cootamundra when the club holds inter town tournaments,” Ms Cooke said.
