Surf Coast Shire residents celebrated another win for regional sport on Saturday with the official opening of a brand new $930,000 netball and tennis pavilion at Mt Moriac Reserve.

The Mt Moriac Netball and Tennis Pavilion Upgrade Project has seen the existing pavilion demolished and a new, multi-use pavilion constructed, providing facilities which will host the Modewarre Football Netball Club, Mount Moriac Tennis Club, and the broader community.

The project has been collaboratively funded, with the State Government contributing $500,000 through the Local Sport Infrastructure Fund, $420,000 from Surf Coast Shire Council, and $10,000 from the Moriac community.

Surf Coast Shire Councillor Adrian Schonfelder said the pavilion was a fantastic addition to the facilities already present at the reserve and would be enjoyed by sportspeople and the community alike.

“Facilities like these are so important to communities like Moriac and this pavilion is not only great for netball and tennis players but will also be a hub for community groups,” Cr Schonfelder said.

The new pavilion includes female friendly change rooms and amenities, a social space, umpires room, enhanced viewing areas, kitchen facilities, administration space, first aid area and increased storage.

“This facility is one of a number of buildings delivered across the Shire that reflects our commitment to providing quality facilities in our region,” Cr Schonfelder said.

“I’m sure this pavilion will help to make it easier and more enjoyable for more people stay healthy, active and connected.”
