CLUBHOUSE REDEVELOPMENT

The first stage of our club redevelopment – the access ramp – was officially opened by local parliamentarian, Tamara Smith, on Friday 1st December.  Some pictures can be viewed in the photo section of this website.

We are now working with the Council to finalise the plans for the second stage – the change rooms – and hope to commence work following our annual Open tournament on 15 January.    

Further donations, which would help with the third stage,  the kitchen upgrade, would still be greatly appreciated. This may be done through the Australian Sports Foundation, and can be made made tax free.   Details of how to contribute, and draft plans, can be found in the fundraising section of this website.
