Whitehorse City Council

Indoor Sports Facility Feasibility Study Consultation

The Indoor Sports Facility Feasibility Study will assess the current provision of indoor court space in the City of Whitehorse, quantify existing and likely future demand for indoor court sports and identify an appropriate strategic approach for the future provision of indoor facilities.

The study will consider issues including:

  • Industry trends and trends specific to the City of Whitehorse relating to changing demographics and community needs.
  • Determining if there is a need for new and/or redeveloped indoor facilities in Whitehorse and for which sports and activities.
  • The level of demand for different types of indoor sports, and how that demand is being met within the City and across the region.
  • Partnership opportunities, including the role of schools, private providers, peak associations and Council.

Council has appointed @leisure Planners to prepare an Indoor Sports Facility Feasibility Study for the municipality.

A range of sporting and community groups, peak sporting bodies and neighbouring Councils will be contacted soon to participate in the project.

Council is seeking input from all those interested in this topic on questions such as:

  • What indoor sport or activities do you participate in? Where do you do these activities?
  • If you don’t participate in a sport or activity, how far would you have to travel to take part?
  • Is there an activity not currently available that you would like to participate in?
