In addition, more than 10,000 residents from neighbouring municipalities (particularly Wyndham and Maribyrnong) also visit Hobsons Bay facilities to participate in regular sporting activities.

    To respond to such a high level of engagement in sport in our city, Hobsons Bay City Council has developed a Draft Sports Facility Needs Analysis to assist in determining the future planning and development of Council’s sporting infrastructure and identify priorities for the effective and sustainable delivery of sport facilities within the city. Council has undertaken the Draft Tennis Needs Assessment separately to best address our city’s facilities, participation trends, supply and demand and future requirements to guide investment so we can meet our growing demand.
