The Mullumbimby Tennis Club’s courts will be out of action this week as resurfacing and the installation of new lighting gets underway.

The courts next to Mullumbimby’s Community Garden were adversely affected by the floods and at least two have been unplayable since then, club president Dale Emerson said.

‘Other courts have uneven surfaces which makes play hard and all of the courts, to some degree, are mould- affected as well,’ he said.

New LED lighting will also be installed this week.

The improvements are funded by grants as well as the club’s sinking fund.

‘The courts will be closed later this week as the lights go in,’ he said.

Otherwise the plan is to have at least three of six courts in operation going forward, as the resurfacing takes place in stages.

Work is expected to finish mid-September.

Suffolk Park

Across the Shire in Suffolk Park the tennis courts in Linda Vidler Park are also being resurfaced.

The two courts have been out of action since late July, but completion of the resurfacing is imminent.

Daniel Mookhey walks the line with NSW budget

NSW Treasurer Daniel Mookhey's second budget in nine months, unveiled last week, was a classic Labor document in its support for education and health, somewhat brave in its slugging of property investors, and disingenuous in its blaming of the GST carve-up for the financial woes of NSW going forward.
