Mission Bay Tennis Club needs your help

  • Post category:Uncategorised

Mission Bay Tennis Club has a CHALLENGE. They need to lay new surface on courts 4-6. The subsoil on courts 4-6 is not good. Undulations can be easily seen. The land is a Council asset. Orakei Local Board has mostly decided on the budget of the next year. The cost of fixing the issue could be north of $100,000. Orakei Local Board budget can be changed BUT it requires 1,000+ signatures to have a chance of being approved.
