If you missed out on tickets to the Australian Open next January don’t fret. Tennis lovers have a brand new home in Evans Head, with the recently relocated Evans Head Tennis Courts set to open in January, a joint project between Richmond Valley Council and the NSW Crown Holiday Parks Trust (NSWCHPT).

NSWCHPT, who oversee the operations of Reflections Holiday Parks (Reflections) Evans Head, have invested $350,000 into the move to a dedicated facility at the nearby Stan Payne Oval, a like for like contribution with Council which will transform the Tennis Courts into a first-class community asset.

Reflections CEO Steve Edmonds said the Trust was proud to invest in a project which will benefit the Evans Head community in such a significant way.

“Through contributing to top quality facilities such as the Evans Head Tennis Court we hope to continue to attract tourists, both Australian and International, to these regional communities and hidden gems of NSW,” Mr Edmonds said.

“Reflections’ mission is to ensure that not only are we contributing to the growth of regional areas across NSW in which our parks are located but to also ensure all funds reinvested benefit visitors to these amazing destinations.”

Richmond Valley Council General Manager Vaughan Macdonald called the project a great coup for both locals and sport enthusiasts visiting Evans Head and said he looked forward to having a hit at the top tier playing and training facility.

“This project is a great outcome for the local Evans Head Tennis Club, providing them with facilities to grow the sport in Evans Head into the future,” Mr McDonald said.

“In conjunction with the Evans Head Tennis Club, we are now working to seek funding to allow the total project to be realised, with an official opening currently planned for May next year.”

Relocation of the Tennis Courts is just one big change happening at Reflections Evans Head over the last month, with new slabs and turf sites and upgrades to two ensuite blocks taking place.

These new additions to the popular holiday park, which was recently recognised as ‘Business of the Year’ at the 2017 Richmond Valley Business Awards, signals a commitment to provide top tier amenities that meet the needs of camping and caravanning holidaymakers.

Evans Head Park Managers Adrian and Casey Easdown called the current work a sign of the park’s dedication to provide unforgettable holiday experiences for both new and returning guests, cementing its status as a must-stay destination to explore the wider Richmond Valley.

“The last month has seen some big changes for our Evans Head team, the new name Reflection sand ongoing upgrades show a continued guest commitment. Evans Head is a ‘back to nature’ getaway with all the mod-cons,” Adrian said.

“Evans Head is a premier holiday destination and we will continue to invest in this vibrant coastal community to attract guests from far and wide,” Mr Edmonds said.

“I look forward to seeing the completion of these works and as an avid tennis player I can’t wait to bring my racquet the next time I visit Evans Head.”
