Bay’s reserve upgrade wishlist

Apollo Bay sporting clubs are drawing up plans for improved facilities to better serve their members. The Bay’s recreation reserve’s netball courts are in the running for a potential redevelopment, alongside new womens’ facilites and clubrooms for functions. New lighting and a scoreboard will be ready for the start of football season.

Improved amenities for women’s sport and updated clubrooms are on the wishlist for tenants of Apollo Bay’s Recreational Reserve as they work towards drafting a master plan for the site.

Key stakeholders, including representatives from the town’s football and netball, cricket and tennis clubs, met with architecture contractor Memla last week to outline their vision for a redevelopment of the reserve’s
facilities.

Apollo Bay Football Netball Club president Kyle Briggs said the interested parties had positive discussions about what was needed at the venue to service the needs of the sporting community.

“The meeting was for the master plan to basically put through our wishlist of what we would like in the future for the Recreation Reserve,” he said.

“We want to have better women’s facilities, in terms of change rooms, toilets and so forth, and to discuss the possibility of a new development build of the clubrooms, to get it updated to have better functions and basically upgrade the facilities because everything’s so old down there.

“It doesn’t mean because we get this master plan done that it’s all going to happen, it’s something the club will have to work to over the next four to five years.”
