State Basketball Centre spring 2023 community update
The State Basketball Centre redevelopment is taking shape! Once complete, it will service everyone from local players to Australian representative athletes while transforming the broader precinct into the premier sports park for Melbourne’s South East.
The project is a partnership between the Victorian Government and Knox City Council who are working closely with State Sports Centres Trust, Basketball Victoria and Knox Gymnastics.
Once completed, the $132 million project - including $27 million from Knox City Council – will be one of Australia’s premier basketball facilities and the long-term home for Knox Basketball Inc and its 11,000-strong members.
It is estimated the centre will host up to two million visitors a year, incorporating elite level basketball, gymnastics, major events, local competitions and community programming.
Did you know?
Once the basketball court floors are installed, we would have used over 10,500 square metres of maple timber?
