    What is being proposed

    The Tennis Pavilion was built in 1935 and due to its age there is currently sagging and the facility is in need of structural works, to make sure it is accessible and can serve the community into the future.

    The main elements of the proposed upgrade are:

    • Restumping and recladding of the building
    • Upgrade of the amenities (toilets)
    • Removal of the unused brick toilet block (the separate brown brick structure that sits behind the pavilion)
    • Installation of a retaining wall between the courts and the pavilion
    • Addition of a larger club room that can also be used as a community space
