Redland Bay Tennis Club is celebrating after winning the title of Queensland club of the year on October 28 at the Tennis Queensland Awards.

The local club won the coveted title at the Tennis Queensland awards at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre, beating out bigger clubs such as Caloundra and Samford

Club treasurer Anneke Goodhew said the club is over the moon with the win.

“We are honoured, absolutely honoured,” she said.

“It just goes to show what an amazing club we have got down here.”

Goodhew said the club had to put together an application in September and completing the submission gave them an insight to just how much their club does for local tennis. 

“We actually ended up putting through an 83 page power point document.”

Goodhew said the award win now means the club is the face of Queensland Tennis clubs for the next 12 months.

“We also received a five per cent discount on LED lights, which is just fantastic because we have just recently received a grant for LED lights,” she said.

“And we need to be available all year for anything promotional, we will be representing the area for the next 12 months.”
