Community TAB of Racing and Wagering WA (RWWA) has awarded Margaret River Tennis Club a $2000 sports grant.

The tennis club was one of four sporting clubs selected to receive a grant in June, from over 500 sporting clubs that have applied from around WA.

Margaret River Tennis Club (MRTC) Grants Coordinator Neale Pike said the club can utilise this grant to deliver excellent outcomes and facilities for their members and the community.

"The club promotes enjoyment of the sport for all new and existing members of all ages and backgrounds without harassment or discrimination," Mr Pike said.

"A major focus of the club currently is to support the development of our junior players within the community through a positive coaching environment that ensures children have a safe, fun and welcoming atmosphere".

"With the assistance of this grant our junior players will get the opportunity to achieve their potential as competitive high performance or social players."

RWWA CEO Richard Burt said the organisation recognises the importance of grass roots sports throughout WA.

"We understand that it takes time and resources to keep a club running within the community, so we are pleased to be giving the opportunity to help relieve this burden on clubs," said Mr Burt.

Community TAB will provide at least one grant each month to a sporting club to further their contribution to the sport and recreation industry in WA. Once a club applies for a grant, the application will stay within the pool until the grant is awarded. Clubs can apply at communitytab.com.au.
