The existing pavilion was extended to incorporate a lounge area and showers were added to both the ladies and mens ablution areas.
Norm Toomer was very involved in the concept of the new lounge, and oversaw the whole project including the interior decorating. The lounge was named The Norm Toomer Lounge and this facility has had a lot of use over the years.
New Astro Turf Surface
A new artificial grass surface was laid on all 5 courts, which resulted in some 70 tonne of sand being spread and bedded down by Wainuiomata tennis club members after the contractor was laid off!
A great innovation for Wainuiomata tennis club, which saw a big reduction in ball and tennis shoe wear and tear. It also meant that we could play in all weathers.
Additional flood lights installed
All 5 courts now floodlit.
Floodlights upgraded to a very high standard.
