Corinella Tennis Court Redevelopment - Harold Hughes Reserve

The redevelopment of the Corinella Tennis Courts located off Balcombe Street within Harold Hughes Reserve, Corinella will start in late-February 2020. This project represents a significant investment in sport and recreation facilities in Corinella. This project will result in:

  • A compliant tennis court with high quality acrylic playing surface which meet Tennis Victoria guidelines including new perimeter fencing and lighting. A book-a-court system will also be installed allowing the public to book a court and to play under lights.
  • A multi-purpose court including high quality acrylic playing surface which comprises of a hit up wall, netball and basketball ring, soccer goals and be linemarked to accommodate an additional tennis court.

The Corinella Tennis Court redevelopment project is an additional major commitment, which has been identified through an organised approach, achieved through Council’s Active Bass Coast Plan, Council’s Open Space Asset Management renewal program. The renewal program ensures that Council’s open space areas are fit for their current use and managed in a way that meets community expectations. This has been achieved by a program of inspections and monitoring activities to assess asset condition, and performance. The project supports Council’s Active Bass Coast Plans visions and objectives, which is a 10 year Plan that sets the vision for the provision of open space, recreation facilities and services across the municipality.

This exciting project is about to start from 24 February 2020 and is expected to be completed by early June, weather permitting. Council recognises that it can be a challenge to deliver the necessary works and not affect key recreational user groups, especially when much of our work is determined by weather conditions. The majority of these works are expected to be completed in May 2020, however it is likely that the acrylic surfacing and linemarking works may not be completed due to specific weather conditions to apply this treatment. Council and our contractor will endeavour to complete all these work, where possible.

Council has awarded a contract to R&C Asphalt Pty Ltd. The total project cost is in the order of $684,000 which is fully funded by Council.
