“The Bayswater Tennis Club is one of the largest in the metro region, providing social and fitness opportunities for members of our community of all ages and abilities.
“The new clubrooms boast energy efficient additions including solar panels and an instant hot water system, fully accessible toilets and showers, a 200 person function suite that will be available for hire, players’ lounges, coaches’ and competitions offices and a fully equipped kitchen.
