Smash hit for Narangba tennis lovers

Posted: 11am 09 Oct 2020

Construction on a new $3 million tennis hub will soon begin at Narangba’s Harris Avenue Sports Complex.

Moreton Bay Region Mayor Peter Flannery says the joint funding investment with the State Government will deliver six new courts, a new clubhouse and pro shop, carparks, lighting and infrastructure.

BBN Constructions aced the tender process and will get work underway next month on the new $3 million tennis hub," Mayor Flannery says.

Joint funding

"This is especially thanks to the Queensland Government's $2 million contribution through its Unite and Recover Community Stimulus Package for Moreton Bay Region.

“We all know the value of sports infrastructure after going through lockdown, so this will be a great boon for the Narangba region, which is an emerging community.”

Mayor Flannery says the Moreton Bay Region has the best sports infrastructure in southeast Queensland and Council wants to ensure facilities are continually upgraded to reflect population growth.

Sports spending increases

“That’s why Council has increased its investment into sports infrastructure by more than 40 percent in this year’s 2020-21 Budget, up from $34 million last financial year to $49 million.

“It’s not only a great way for us all to stay fit and healthy but to keep mentally fresh as we all deal with these tough times.”

The Unite and Recover Community Stimulus Package project is a joint initiative of Moreton Bay Regional Council and the Queensland Government.

Construction is due to start in November and is expected to be complete by July 2021, weather permitting.
