    The State Government has made a $4,500 grant to tennis in the Great Southern.

    Sport and Recreation Minister Norman Moore announced the funding from the Sports Lottery Fund Country Package today.

    The money will go to the Great Southern Zone 7 Tennis Committee.

    It will support about 100 players through senior and junior development camps and the development of squad programs.

    Mr Moore said juniors would also benefit from intensive training in Perth with State coaches and teams.

    “I am delighted that the State Government has been able to help,” he said.

    “Tennis is one of Western Australia’s most popular participant sports and it is important that people living in the country get a chance to enjoy the game.

    “While some may go on to higher levels, the important thing is that people of all abilities have access to healthy competition.”
