This existing tennis centre is located at the base of Castle Hill in the centre of North Ward in Townsville. In line with the ambitions of various stakeholders for tennis to regain popularity, the club embarked upon a redevelopment of the entire facility.
Two different areas of existing courts are separated by Burke Street. The project addresses this issue by providing a pedestrian spine between the two areas and beyond to link all of the courts. A new clubhouse and amenities building are positioned on Burke Street to provide a gateway to the club, along with an effective point of control and an appropriate public presence. Ground levels throughout are adjusted to provide vantage points for viewing over the courts.
