Federal Member for Calare, the Hon John Cobb MP, announced Canowindra Tennis Club has been successful in receiving funding under Round 1 of the Stronger Communities program.

Mr Cobb said the club has received $5000 towards the construction of a tennis hit up wall giving people the opportunity to enjoy the sport when they don't have an opponent.

"It's not only great for those wanting to practice on their own but for those learning tennis.

"Tennis is a popular sport in Canowindra with the courts being used for clinics, social players, local tennis groups and school groups.

"It's great to be able to support such a vital community activity", Mr Cobb said.

Expressions of interest under Round 2 of the Stronger Communities programme are now being assessed with $150,000 set aside for small capital projects in Calare.
