In the early hours of Friday, 3rd November, the Joan Nicoll Tennis Centre Clubhouse, base of Tennis Terranora, was destroyed by fire.

The building was 2 years old.

The fire is a suspected arson attack and is still under investigation.

The committee is now being directed by their insurance company, but demolition and rebuilding will commence as soon as possible.

Luckily, the 5 tennis courts are undamaged and coaching activities will recommence from today, (November 6th) with the arrival of portable toilets, chairs and temporary shade cover. It is hoped that daytime tennis competitions will recommence this week.

The Tennis Terranora committee would like to thank the many people who have reached out with offers of assistance since the fire. The community support has been most uplifting. Unfortunately, the insurance will not cover the full costs associated with our rebuild and refit and we hope that you will find it in your hearts to support us, so that we can, in return, provide a new Centre, as soon as possible, for us all to enjoy again.

A PayPal account has been set up by Tennis Terranora to accept monetary donations of help. The club would very much appreciate any donations, large or small, to get us started on the road to recovery - simply click on the 'Donate' button above where you'll be taken to a secure payment area.

We have now also set up fundraising through the Australian Sports Foundation, please also consider donating via the button above.

Thank you in anticipation of your generous support.
