Construction works for the new and improved Somerville Recreation & Community Centre began in February 2018.
The State Government is providing $1.3m funding through the Sport and Recreation Victoria’s Better Indoor Stadiums Fund, together with the commitment by Council of $4.3 million means the new stadium will feature:
- four multi-sport indoor courts
- female-friendly change rooms
- an umpire change room
- a first aid room
- tournament office
- storage and car parking.
The redevelopment will also include refurbishing the damaged community area, and better public areas in the recreation centre.
Mornington Peninsula Shire will extend its partnership with Belgravia Leisure for the management and operation of the Somerville Recreation Centre, Belgravia Leisure will operate the soon-to-be-completed $9 million stadium until 2022.
The Shire will continue to work with the community as the rebuild is taking place and will keep residents informed as the project progresses.
