New courts to be a hit

Liberal candidate for Macedon Amanda Millar met with members of the Riddells Creek Tennis Club to announce the news of funds for stage two of the courts development.

Tennis will become even more of a hit in Riddells Creek with three new Tennis Australia compliant hard courts to be constructed.
The $100,000 upgrade for Riddells Creek Tennis Club’s long-awaited stage two development will be funded through the Building Better Regions Fund – Infrastructure Projects stream.
Riddells Creek Tennis Club secretary Andrew Nicoll said the development would mean the club would have access to six operational courts that would put it on same footing as others in the district and increase opportunities for players.
He said it would also mean home games could be played at home rather than at Bullengarook or Kyneton, as in the past for some players.
“I am over the moon. It means we can our teams playing at home. We are moving pretty quickly and working with council on a design to go to tender,” he said.
“The potential is great. I am looking forward to cutting the ribbon for the new courts sometime next year.”
Victorian Liberal Senator James Paterson said the project was a significant investment in building stronger communities for the long term.
“This will have major flow-on benefits across the community, improving physical health, increasing social connections, and encouraging more volunteering in Riddells Creek,” Mr Paterson said.
Liberal candidate for Macedon Amanda Millar said the members of the Riddells Creek Tennis Club had worked tirelessly to see their courts constructed.
“This great announcement by the federal Coalition Government will see construction start immediately on the final stage of this project to make it a reality for Riddells Creek families,” she said.
Mr Nicholl thanked all who had offered advice and assistance along the way.
