Following the handover, the tennis court is now owned by SC Council.
Prior to the handover, the tennis net was repaired as required by Stockland. This is no longer the case, in future all repairs will be required to be made by SC Council. SC Council repair budget certainly isn’t as extensive as Stockland’s.
What this all means is that if the tennis court net requires repetitive repairs at SC Council’s expense, it would be most prudent for Council to fully remove the tennis net completely.
This isn’t a desirable outcome for those who enjoy a leisurely free hit up at the tennis court.
Generally the tennis court net is damaged because youngsters choose to sit on it. They are not there for a hit of tennis, they are just ‘hanging out’ with their friends.
The tennis court net is currently in need of repair.
BeCA would not be surprised if SC Council decided to remove the net rather than begin a series of expensive repairs because of these budget constraints.
The tennis court net wasn’t in a good state of repair when the handover occurred. Stockland was not prepared to upgrade the net.
Residents would need to appreciate, if SC Council does repair the tennis court net, further damage to it from inappropriate use would probably not be repaired at SC Council’s expense.
The damage done to the net has been reported to the police.
