Bass Liberal MHR Bridget Archer has guaranteed that all of the grants awarded in Bass under the contentious Community Sports Infrastructure Grants Program were "worthwhile and eligible", and did not play a part in her election victory last year.
Tennis Tasmania received the maximum $500,000 for changerooms, toilet and offices to ensure the future of the Launceston International, while Trevallyn Cricket Club received $101,400 and Scottsdale Football Club received $98,500.
Newstead Tennis and Squash Centre also received $11,000.
Labor-held Bass was a clear target for the coalition ahead of the May election, but Ms Archer said all grant decisions were made before she announced her candidacy.

She said she was comfortable with the grants in Bass.
"I can guarantee that every project that achieved funding here in Bass was worthwhile and eligible," Ms Archer said.
"That was undertaken prior to my becoming a candidate, but I can absolutely be assured that all projects were eligible and all projects are very important here in Bass."
She said the grants could have helped incumbent Labor MHR Ross Hart rather than the coalition.
The grant program has plunged the federal government into controversy after the Australian National Audit Office found then-sport minister Bridget McKenzie ignored advice of Sport Australia and instead awarded grants in targeted seats.
The ABC also revealed that applications were colour-coded in a spreadsheet for the party that held the seat. The data showed that 94 of the 223 successful projects did not meet the threshold set by Sport Australia.
Sport Minister and Tasmanian senator Richard Colbeck has requested assurances from Sport Australia and the Health Department that the leaked spreadsheet did not come from these agencies.
In Braddon, King Island Council's application for a $500,000 grant was given an independent score of 93/100, making it the country's seventh-strongest application that was ultimately refused.
Braddon was Labor-held, but was among the seats to be targeted, and won, by the coalition which required only a small swing following a by-election.
Tasmanian Labor senator Helen Polley said there will be an attempt to establish a Senate Inquiry into the handling of the grants program.
She said clubs applied for grants with the knowledge that it was an independent process.
"Some even pay for a professionally written grant. They enter this grant application process believing it will be assessed based on merit not on partisan politics," Senator Polley said.
"Minister McKenzie must resign over this rorting of sporting grants."
