The Bendigo TA have been working with the City of Greater Bendigo, Tennis Australia, Tennis Victoria and the State Government of Victoria on a plan to upgrade the on and off court facilities at our main Complex, in Nolan St Bendigo.
Following the investment already made into the Complex courts, stakeholders are finalising the design plans for the redevelopment of the clubhouse pavilion, car park area and surrounding landscaping. The project will keep the Centre at the forefront of playing venues in Australia, and further enhance our ability to build the sport of tennis both locally and across the region, as well as ensuring we continue to attract events of a National and International significants to Bendigo.
The vision for the project will result in the following:
Tournament standard courts and facilities
With a strong tournament focus and strength in plexicushion court numbers, attention now needs to be placed on the clubhouse and centre court to ensure that the quality of off court facilities matches the class of the on court facilities.
National event ready
This project will assist in attracting and delivering events of a regional, state and national significance at the Bendigo Tennis Centre, as well as providing the flexibility to provide a diversity of other events allowing it to operate as a high quality and regionally significant tennis centre for the next 20-30 years.
Developing local champions
The events provided at the centre provide flow on benefits to the region, including providing pathways for aspiring athletes, bringing in significant visitor numbers to the region and give the region exposure to current and future tennis champions (previous competitors at Bendigo Tennis Centre events include Sam Groth and Casey Dellacqua).
