Ted Summerton Reserve
Ted Summerton Reserve will be developed as a regional sporting hub for cricket, housing a centre of excellence with new high quality indoor training facilities to support the ambitions and development of the region’s future stars.
A state of the art indoor cricket training centre will incorporate cutting edge technology to facilitate high-level coaching and player education.
The centre will be multi-purpose, catering to a diverse cross-section of community groups and sporting clubs.
What’s happening now?
A $500,000 funding boost from Sport and Recreation Victoria has brought the total funding for the centre to $3.5 million.
This will allow for the construction of a facility inclusive of four indoor wickets, administration area and more.
Cricket Victoria has provided a schedule of desired components for the centre of excellence in consultation with regional cricket groups.
A revised concept has been developed following discussion with user groups and is continuing to be refined prior to entering a process for the new centre’s construction.
A Project Reference Group has been established to help guide the project and its first meeting was held in May.
