THANKS Callide Valley Tennis Association Noel White, Julie White, Peggy Sack and Clarice White test out their new notice sign from QGC community funds grant.

THE Callide Valley Tennis Association hopes a grant from QGC will help attract new players to the club.

A sign has been erected at the club using a grant valued at $4300 from QGC's Community Fund.

CVTA president Julie White said the grant would really help the club.

"We are hoping it will mean we can get some more information out in the community on what is going on at the club," Julie said.

"We have had some small signs but they are right near the gate and aren't very visible.

"We hope it will mean we can advertise what we are having.

"It might not sound like much but, when you are a small club, it means a lot."

Julie said the move should mean the club would be able to get more people involved.

"We are looking at changing fixtures from Wednesday to Thursday to get some people who play touch and are interested but can't play because they have touch on Wednesday," she said.

"We are also hoping to get some younger generations involved."

Julie said the association wouldn't have been able to afford the sign itself.

"If we didn't get the grant, we would have had to put that money towards maintenance so this means we are able to do both."

The tennis association's new season will start on January 31.
