G.E. Robinson Reserve Tennis Pavilion Upgrade

G.E. Robinson Reserve

This page has been developed to keep the community informed of the current works and future development at G.E Robinson Reserve.

G.E Robinson was selected for works due to factors including:

  • Age and condition of the Pavilion (built in 1935)
  • Convenient location of the Reserve and suitability for a broad range of community uses

The upgrade will cater for increased growth in female and junior sport in Darebin and provide updated facilities for the club and community alike to enjoy.

Following community consultation in 2018 regarding the redevelopment which included two pop up sessions, submissions received from community members and consultation with the local tennis club, the contract has been awarded and works have been scheduled to begin.

Follow the News Feed below for specific updates during the course of the project.

    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
