Riverfront tennis courts will be a hit at Northshore
Brisbane’s severe shortage of tennis courts will be given a boost when the State Government unveils the city’s first riverfront pop-up tennis courts are at Northshore Hamilton in May.
Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Cameron Dick said the six temporary tennis courts – the result of a deal between Economic Development Queensland (EDQ) and Tennis Australia – may have the best views of any courts in Australia.
“Brisbane has fallen behind when it comes to tennis courts and Tennis Australia research shows the city is approximately 400 courts behind the capital city average and national average,” Mr Dick said.
“This is a great location, being right next to the Brisbane River and the recently relocated Eat Street.
