Tambellup celebrates sports pavilion upgrade
Tambellup is celebrating the completion of a new sporting pavilion and synthetic bowling green at the Tambellup Sports Ground.
The GSDC supported the $3.2 million project through its Regional Grants Scheme, with a grant of $200,000 to the Shire of Broomehill-Tambellup.
Richard Goyder AO, a former Tambellup resident and now director of Wesfarmers and Chairman of the AFL Commission, officially opened the pavilion on Friday 1 September.
Tambellup turned out for the occasion, with sports displays and activities showing off the new facilities.
The new pavilion hosts the existing tennis, hockey, cricket and football sporting clubs, and allows the bowling club to move to the site with the installation of synthetic bowling greens.
Features include an integrated kitchen and bar, storage areas, and new change rooms and toilets. The venue’s main hall is linked to a meeting room, enabling flexibility for small-scale and larger-scale functions.
The project was intended to provide community benefits including the potential for increased participation in organised sport and recreation activities, and better social facilities for the community.
