Tennis Victoria is thrilled to welcome the grand opening of the Monash Tennis Centre and Multisport Pavilion, marking a significant milestone in Victoria’s sporting landscape.

Tamatha Harding, Tennis Victoria Interim CEO, shares her excitement: “Tennis Victoria aims to create safe, inclusive, and thriving Victorian tennis communities that enable more people to play tennis more often. This new facility in the City of Monash will offer the opportunity for club-based play as well as future regional tournaments and competitions.”

The eagerly anticipated Monash Tennis Centre and multisport pavilion, boasting a $26.7 million investment, is ready to dazzle spectators and athletes alike. Set within Glen Waverley’s vibrant Jells Park, this state-of-the-art venue held the official unveiling on Saturday 23 March.

Over the course of three years, a fruitful collaboration between Council and the Victorian Government, facilitated by North East Link, has brought this vision to fruition. With a substantial funding injection of $21 million from the Victorian Government and a contribution of $5.77 million from Council, the facility promises to be a premier destination for sports enthusiasts.

Featuring an impressive array of amenities, the centre comprises a regional level tennis venue housing 18 courts, including two showcase courts, alongside a multisport pavilion catering to tennis and golf enthusiasts. Additional enhancements include golf practice facilities, public open spaces, ample parking, a café, and essential supporting infrastructure.

Glenvale Tennis Club, in a strategic move, will relocate to the premises and operate eight courts under a license agreement with Council. Furthermore, co-users Glen Waverley Golf Club will share the pavilion and upgraded facilities, marking another significant milestone in Council’s vision for an integrated multisport precinct. The Monash Tennis Centre is poised to host major tournaments, replacing the former Boroondara tennis centre, aligning with the new North East Link tunnels’ connectivity to an upgraded Eastern Freeway.

Minister for Transport Infrastructure Danny Pearson affirms, “We’re serving up a record investment in local sport, so communities can continue to thrive as we build North East Link.” Member for Glen Waverley John Mullahy echoes this sentiment, expressing pride in the Allan Labor Government’s commitment to enhancing local livability.

Monash Mayor Cr Nicky Luo expresses her delight, emphasizing the project’s significance as a game-changer for tennis in Monash. “Participation in tennis continues to grow in Monash, and the new facility will be a massive addition to an already thriving sports and recreation precinct.”

Tennis Victoria extends its heartfelt gratitude to the City of Monash and the Victorian State Government for their unwavering support. The Monash Tennis Centre represents a monumental step forward in fostering tennis communities that are vibrant, inclusive, and accessible to all.
