Lauren Jackson Sports Centre Upgrade

Detailed investigations and planning for Stage 1 upgrades will be undertaken during 2019-2020 to ensure the facility is bought up to modern standards and accessible for all users.

About this project

More than 160,000 participants use the Lauren Jackson Sports Centre each year for a range of activities and events. Many participants are local sports teams of all ages, while others are visiting for tournaments and events, bringing economic benefit to our region.

In 2019-20 and 2020/21 we are investing $500k in detailed investigations and planning for Stage 1 upgrades to ensure our facility is bought up modern standards and accessible for all users. These improvements are set to further establish the Lauren Jackson Sports Centre as one of the regions premiere sporting and event destinations.

Stage 1 improvements include:

  • Fixed retractable seating for the main court to increase capacity to 1400 (currently 1100). This seating style will protect the playing surface and provide versatility in venue set-up (allowing for sports events, concerts, conferences, trade fairs etc.)
  • Realignment and upgrade of courts, including: run offs for basketball/netball, floorplates for netball/badminton and an extended walkway on the northern end of all courts
  • Replacement of sports court flooring
  • Construction of accessible and family change facilities and amenities
  • Construction of an additional set of change rooms
  • New meeting room
  • New roof and guttering
  • Improvements to the Centre’s fa├žade
  • Additional office space for key user groups
  • Additional back-of-house storage

This is an identified priority project for Council and external matching funding will be sought in order to facilitate the Stage 1 construction in the short to medium term.
