A TENNIS club has netted �23,000 after a district council announced a batch of grants to support community projects.
North Herts district council has granted a total of more than �110,000 to rural community projects in the district, and the tennis club is one of the biggest beneficiaries, being given the cash to help with their project to build new courts.
