DPTC New Courts – News Update

There has been a lot of interest in the project which will see 2 additional courts and toilet facilities installed for our members.   The project team would like you to know the following:

  • Predicted starting date for construction is September 2018
  • Play will not be disrupted during construction with a health and safety plan in place which will include temporary fencing and a dust protection barrier
  • LED lanterns will be installed to light the new courts – this will yield a 30% saving in potential running costs
  • The grant allocation was €144,000 and the club had to contribute an additional €7,940 to be awarded the grant. The phase 2 project will come in at a higher amount than the sum of the grant and our contribution- this is why it was so important to have such successful fundraisers such as the bag pack and the Bit Hit. A huge thank you to the members who organized these events.
