The Hampton Park Tennis Club has hit a winner after receiving a $3,000 grant from the Andrews Labor Government.

State Labor Member for Narre Warren South Judith Graley visited the club to share the good news with players and their families earlier this week.

As part of the VicHealth Active Club Grants program the club has received a grant to purchase ten junior and ten senior racquets, as well as six nets for their tennis courts.

The Active Club Grants programs aim to increase physical activity by making it easier for clubs to reach out to new participants and fund items or equipment that help them to improve safety.
