The City of Stonnington is undertaking improvement works to the tennis courts and surrounding facilities at the Malvern Tennis Centre in Union Street, Armadale.

The Malvern Tennis Centre is a valued community and sporting asset, with the improvement works designed to ensure the Centre is enjoyed by the tennis community for years to come.

Construction is due to commence in November 2018 and be completed in February 2019, during which time the courts will be closed.  No work will be carried out over the Christmas/New Year period.

Scope of works

Improvement works to the Malvern Tennis Club will include: 

  • New synthetic playing surfaces, with new nets and line marking, to the Centre's five courts.
  • New floodlights with energy efficient, high performance, low spill LED fittings.  The new shorter lighting towers and improved lighting will generate less light spill than the existing floodlights, improving the amenity for surrounding residents.
  • New, realign southern boundary fence to improve player safety.
  • New screen planting to the the northern and western boundary fences.
  • Drainage improvements across the site.

Please note:  The existing Malvern Tennis Centre footprint and number of courts will not change.
