Swan Hill is set to host Country Week Tennis in 2025, following this week’s announcement by Tennis Victoria.
Swan Hill Rural City Council Mayor Cr Stuart King said Council was delighted Swan Hill had been chosen to host the Country Week tennis event.
“Country week tennis is a fantastic opportunity to showcase our beautiful region. It is great for our local economy with accommodation facilities filled and dollars spent within the town – we are thrilled.
“The event welcomes more than 1,200 participants and is the largest grassroots tennis event in Australia.
“Filling local accommodation facilities and hospitality venues and seeing dollar flow into town – injecting up to $1.5 million into the local economy.
“Country Week is a chance to showcase our wonderful municipality and encourage visitors to explore our region and all it has to offer,” Cr King added.
Cr King said the selection was a testament to local volunteers.
“I extend my congratulations to members of the Swan Hill Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, who have a long-standing reputation for building partnerships within the community as well as successfully hosting previous Country Week tournaments. Once again, the hard work of all their dedicated volunteers has paid off, Cr King added.
Country Week will be held from Sunday, 9 February to Friday, 14 February 2025.
