Background

Home to over 30 clubs and 6000+ registered participants, the Altona Sports Centre is Hobsons Bay's netball and basketball hub. Located within HD Graham Reserve, Altona Meadows, the Sports Centre was initially constructed in the 1980s and extended in 2008. It currently has six indoor basketball/netball courts, two outdoor netball courts in addition to amenities, meetings rooms, kiosk and nearby parking.

In 2016 Council has undertaken a feasibility study to investigate the Centre's user needs and facility requirements, to help Council shape its plan for the future of the facility. This included an extensive community consultation process that included over 600 responses from users of the Altona Sports Centre, in addition to direct consultation with sporting associations and other stakeholders. It is fantastic to see that the Centre is supported by such an active and passionate community.

The outcome of the study identified that a four court expansion of the Altona Sport Centre addresses current unmet and future expansion demands.

A four court expansion of the Altona Sports Centre meets the needs of the Hobsons Bay community and will also provide an important service to the wider community in adjoining municipalities.

In 2018, Council was successful in receiving $3 million from the Victorian Government's Better Indoor Stadium Fund and has been identified as a priority action for Council as part of the Capital Works Program for 2019-20.
