PLANS for new clubrooms shared by Fremantle’s tennis, bowls and workers clubs moved a step forward this week with the local council submitting a funding application to the state government.
The council has asked the department of sport and recreation to match the $3 million it’s putting in with the workers club for the facility on Fremantle Park.
Tennis club president Laurie Apps says it’s an exciting time for the 100-year-old club, which launches its new season with an open day on October 11.
“Our membership grew substantially last year and it’s particularly gratifying to see our junior club booming under the leadership of club coach Brendan Malarkey,” Mr Apps said.
The open day includes a sausage sizzle, afternoon tea and music, and it’s free for anyone interested in working on their volley.
