The Government has been aggressively awarding grants to STA but these grants are not sufficient to fund all the activities of the STA. The Government has limited funds on this matter.

As the clubhouse is one of the main priorities for Sabah Tennis development programs, the association aimed to conduct full-scale fund rising activities starting this year 2012. The association would also seek for the government’s and corporate contributions. Construction would commence in 2012, and be ready for occupation by 2014 if all the proposed plans go as schedule.
