Wonthaggi Tennis Court Redevelopment

Council wishes to advise of the redevelopment of the Wonthaggi Tennis Courts within the Wonthaggi Recreation Reserve commencing mid-November 2019. This project represents an investment in sport and recreation facilities in Wonthaggi and will create a total of seven (7) high quality tennis courts and multi-games area. This project will result in:

  • A total of five (5) compliant tennis courts with high quality synthetic grass playing surface which meet Tennis Victoria guidelines including new perimeter fencing and lighting. The two (2) existing “blue courts” will be available to use for the Wonthaggi Tennis Club throughout the duration of the construction works
  • a multi-use games area which comprises of five (5) cricket training nets and futsal soccer pitch with high quality synthetic grass playing surface. Retractable fencing for the cricket nets will be installed to create a mini-version futsal soccer pitch.

This exciting project is about to start from 11 November 2019 and is expected to be completed by 12 March 2020, 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.

Council has awarded a contract to Turf One Pty Ltd. The total project cost is in the order of $1,757,000 with contribution from Sport and Recreation Victoria (SRV) of $180,000 for the multi-purpose area.
