The two-year-old stadium already boasts 10 competition standard courts including a 1500 seat show court.
It’s home to both the Casey Netball Association, Casey Basketball Association, the mighty Casey Cavaliers basketball team, and hosts thousands of community and school sports players every week.
However, there was a chronic shortage of facilities for gymnastics and indoor cricket in the area, with both activities showing strong growth.
The completion of Stage 2 of the Casey Stadium Indoor Sports Area Redevelopment has added fantastic new facilities to the stadium.
The gymnastics extensions to the stadium include an expanded gymnastics floorspace, office, coaches’ room, spectator seating, change area, accessible amenities and storage and multipurpose rooms.
The indoor cricket extensions include increased floorspace, flexible floor/netting that can be used for a variety of sports, high performance cricket training facilities, an upgraded office, social spaces, kiosk and storage facilities.
This will enable national level indoor cricket and gymnastics competition to be held there, provide all-weather training facilities for the Melbourne Stars and Casey South Melbourne Cricket Club, and also benefit the many other clubs and associations that use the stadium.
The project has already reaped dividends, with the stadium to host the Indoor Cricket National Championships from 29 June to 13 July.
The Victorian Government is strongly committed to sport and active recreation, gender equality and encouraging all Victorians to get out there and get active.
Across Victoria it has invested more than $850 million in community sport and recreation facilities since 2014.
Project partners include City of Casey, YMCA, and Cricket Victoria.
