Torphins Tennis Club is excited to announce that they have completed the installation of their six new floodlights and they are now in operation.

The floodlights will benefit the community greatly, extending the club’s coaching time in the darker months as well as providing members with more flexibility when using the courts.

The installation part of the project was primarily funded by “Awards for All Scotland,” who gave a generous grant of £10,000.

The remainder of the project was funded by a donation from “Scotmid” and from various fundraising events organised by the club.

A spokesperson said: ‘‘Torphins Tennis Club would like to thank everyone who contributed to the success of the project, and all the members of the local community who supported them throughout.

They hope to have a social event later in the year to celebrate the new facility and details will be advertised nearer the time.

Meanwhile if anyone is interested in joining the club then please contact Heather Davidson on 013398 89326 or Samantha Gifford on 013398 89323 for more details.
