Perthshire North MSP, Mr John Swinney, and Perth and North Perthshire MP, Mr Pete Wishart, have today congratulated Kinnoull Tennis Club on receiving a £5,000 National Lottery Awards for All Scotland grant from SportScotland.

“I am delighted to learn that Kinnoull Tennis Club have received this significant lottery grant.

Mr Wishart added:
“I congratulate Kinnoull Tennis Club on receiving £5,000 from the National Lottery.
“I am particularly pleased to hear that they intend to use the grant to make the tennis club more accessible for disabled players and spectators. I wish them all the best with their plans and I would encourage any other community groups to look at what funding may be available to them through the National Lottery.”
