Work is under way to upgrade Broome's tennis courts at BRAC, with the finished product promising to be world-class.
Westcoast Synthetic Surfaces has been employed to facilitate the upgrade, with the venture funded by contributions from the Shire of Broome, Department of Sport and Recreation, Tennis Australia and the Broome Tennis Club.
Seven surfaces will be upgraded to plexi-pave acrylic, with one to be laid with plexi-cushion, which is the same as the courts used at the Australian Open grand slam event.
Progress was inspected by Shire president Graeme Campbell and Shire chief executive officer Kenn Donohoe last week, with DSR regional manager Dean Holder and Broome Tennis Club president Aaron Bell also giving the facilities the once-over. Mr Bell previously said his vision was for the facilities to become a centre of excellence for the Kimberley and wider region.
Work is set to be finished by the end of the month, with Broome Tennis Club planning a public unveiling event.
