Plans for Gungahlin tennis facility
Plans for a new community tennis facility in Gungahlin were released last week, featuring 12 full-size courts and two hot shots courts. With the backing of former Australian Davis Cup player/captain Wally Masur, it will be the first brand-new tennis facility to be built in the Territory in over 30 years. Tennis ACT is working with the ACT Government on making the facility a reality.
