Plans for the final phase of an ambitious £550,000 tennis development in Perthshire have been lodged.
Members of Blairgowrie Tennis Club are already playing on state-of-the-art floodlit courts and now proposals have been unveiled for a new clubhouse.
If given the green light by Perth and Kinross Council work at the John Johnston Coupar Recreation Park site could be completed by next summer.
The club aim to attracting new players and want to create a car park along with a terrace, steps and access ramps.
Planning approval was previously granted for the five all-weather tennis courts at the site.
Susan Whiteford, vice-president of Blairgowrie Tennis Club, said the new facilities will make a huge difference to the local community.
“The new clubhouse will have a function room which will be available for the local community to hire for a variety of uses,” she said.
“The club intends to use the facility for the various social events that they hold over the summer.
“Also, this is the first year that the club has been able to play through the winter and we will be able to hold functions through the darker nights of winter and also to have shelter when waiting for a game.
“The club already have pre-school groups learning skills on the courts and the clubhouse will be used when the weather doesn’t allow them to continue outdoors.”
“The clubhouse building is estimated to cost between £150,000 and £200,000 and we hope it will be completed by next summer.
“This will be the final phase of the £550,000 development.
“We are currently playing on the five polymeric floodlit courts, which are providing a superb new sporting facility for the residents of Blairgowrie and surrounding area.”
The club previously had around 130 members and are optimistic the new development will increase numbers.
Funding has been provided through various sources, including club members and sportscotland.
