The Nadi Sports and Social Club will be opening its refurbished tennis and multi-purpose courts in February.

The upgrading has cost the Nadi Sports and Social Club $250,000 and the new facilities will have four tennis courts and a multi-purpose court.

Club president Mike Jamieson said the facility would be the state-of-the-art in the region.

“The tennis and the multi-purpose courts will have blue synthetic turfs enabling players to play comfortably and avoid injuries,” he said.

“We are hoping to complete the refurbishment works in February. We have finished work on our turfs and now we are doing the fencing.

“We are the third country after New Zealand and Australia in the South Pacific to have these blue synthetic turfs and we are really excited about it.

“This is after 18 years that we have undertaken this major development works which is very important in the development of sports in the country.

“The multi-purpose court will give opportunity to futsal players to play on a synthetic turf as currently Nadi do not have a proper synthetic turf for futsal players.”

Jamieson added that their tennis courts can host international tennis events.

“We want to host international tennis events in the future and we will work on this upon completion of this project,” Jamieson added.
