About our projects

We plan, design and build a range of infrastructure for the benefit of the community.

These are the projects currently underway:

Scarborough Park Courts

Status:

Complete

Starts:

Winter 2023

Ends:

Autumn 2024

Project update: 

The new Scarborough Park Courts are now open to the public after a period of closure to renew the area and create an accessible, multi-play facility for the community.

Six new courts, player and spectator shelters, fencing, sporting infrastructure and accessible connecting paths have all been included in the upgrade creating a true multi-sport facility.

The revitalised area promises to be an exciting new addition to recreational and sport spaces in Bayside.
The project included installation of an acrylic hard-court surface, which unfortunately was affected by rain during the construction, resulting in some blistering. The contractor will undertake the works required in the warmer month of September to ensure the facility is an excellent standard for the community to enjoy for years to come. 

In the meantime, the area is safe and open for the community to make use of. Bookings can be made through the operators, Sydney Sports Management Group, via https://www.scarboroughsports.com.au/book-a-court/.
