Hard Court Repair and Re-surfacing

Feb 2019: The two hard courts were repaired and re-surfaced by Plexipave NZ. This is thanks to funding from the Otago Community Trust and the Lion Foundation. The courts look great in blue with a green surround, just like the US Open courts. Peter Dick Club President.
