The stadium is home to the Western Port Steelers and is the headquarters of the Western Port Basketball Association with more than 130 registered teams and nearly 2000 members. It’s also used by the Baxter Indoor Netball Association and Mornington Peninsula Badminton Inc.
The stadium has now been rebuilt with four indoor multi-sport courts doubling its capacity. It also features female friendly change rooms, an umpires change room, first aid room, tournament office, storage space and better accessible public facilities and parking.
The community centre has been repaired and upgraded and the expanded stadium will now give clubs improved access to court space and flexibility to schedule games and training.
The Better Indoor Stadiums Fund is a Victorian Government initiative that helps deliver indoor multi-sport courts across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria. Since 2016 the fund has helped develop 10 stadiums across Victoria.
The fund is part of the government’s commitment to getting Victorians up and active. Across Victoria the government has invested more than $630 million in community sport and recreation facilities since 2014.
