Corryong Tennis Court Redevelopment Proposal
The proposal to upgrade the Corryong Tennis Courts is a direct result of extensive community consultation undertaken for the Corryong Recreation Reserve. Council appointed Melbourne-based architects, Clarke Hopkins Clarke, to conduct a series of workshops with key recreational reserves and their affiliated user groups to identify current context, future plans and priorities.
Corryong is a rural and isolated community and tennis is important for community social activity and connectedness. The community aims to upgrade the current playing surface to attract more participants back to the game by re-invigorating community interest by holding tennis clinics, twilight games, and mixed men’s and ladies’ competitions, junior and senior tournaments.
Council continues to work with funding agencies and the local community to upgrade four courts. New tennis nets and posts, fixed umpire seating and new fencing are proposed to replace deteriorated equipment. In addition, a tennis practice wall and a down ball wall area will potentially be installed to support community multi-use and informal recreational pursuits, making the venue a more attractive recreational space.
The resurfacing and infrastructure improvements will support a long term vision of superior sporting facilities being made available to the Corryong community to encourage more people being more active, more often. The upgrade is listed as a priority in the Towong Shire Council Plan.
