Altona Sports Centre

State Government funding of $9 million for the Altona Sports Centre Complex expansion.

The Altona Sports Centre on Queen Street, Altona Meadows, is one of Hobsons Bay’s most popular sporting facilities. It is currently comprised of six indoor basketball/netball courts, two outdoor netball courts and a kiosk area. The centre services Hobsons Bay residents, as well as many residents of neighbouring municipalities.

The Altona Sports Centre has been operating at capacity during peak times for the past four years. Over 6,400 players are currently registered across the two competitions based at the centre. Due to high demand at peak times there are significant scheduling issues and there are 70-80 byes per week and new teams are also turned away as there is no room for growth. The outdoor netball courts are ageing and the current function room is not large enough for its purpose.

The inability of the centre to meet community demand is having a significant impact on the future growth and viability of the centre and the clubs, as well as on the broader community.

This project is Council’s highest priority sports project for the next two years and was identified as a short term priority in Council’s Sports Facility Needs Analysis.

What is required?

  • State Government funding commitment of $9 million to support:
    • An additional four indoor courts to cater for current and future demand for our community.
    • Associated support facilities including increased car parking, amenities and community meeting spaces to help improve the functionality of the centre.
