Sport and Recreation Minister Norman Moore has announced a State Government grant of $4082 for tennis in the Central South.
The funding, from the Sports Lottery Fund Country Package, is to help Tennis West continue a development program now in its seventh year.
The program is made up of five components - education, participation, talented player development, competition and administration.
About 2,500 participants of all ages and skill levels will benefit from the grant.
Mr Moore said he was delighted to announce the funding.
“This investment by the State Government underlines its support for sport in regional Western Australia,” he said.
“Funding such as this does not only have an immediate impact, it creates the setting in which the future development of sports can be addressed with long-term benefits to the region.”
