The club is very fortunate to have such magnificent facilities 5 polymeric all weather floodlit courts.
The project took over 5 years from planning permission to completion. Through the sale of our old site and a substantial grant from Sports Scotland and smaller grants from Gannochy Trust, Robertson Trust and Perth and Kinross Council the club was close to raising the full sum to build the 5 courts. The final part of the jigsaw was completed by the LTA. Blairgowrie were the first club to be awarded a new funding round and received a grant and loan to allow building to start.
The next project is to build a new clubhouse. In November 2016 we received planning permission for for the clubhouse and we have asked for quotes from various companies. The club has about half the funding required and will be applying for funding from Sports Scotland and other funders.
The clubhouse will have a clubroom, kitchen and male and female changing rooms and toilets. The building will be fully disability compliant and have a terrace leading to the courts. In the interim until the clubhouse is built the club will continue using the Portacabin kindly loaned to us from Gordon Cater hire.
