Barossa Tennis Audits

The audits were completed using a web based audit program designed specifically to reflect the facility development guidelines for netball and tennis.  The Sports Facility Auditor program includes a checklist that assesses the condition, compliance and lifecycle of the asset.  The audit process undertaken for this project included the following:

  1. Visual inspection of each venue, court, court enclosure and supporting amenities.
  2. Assessment of courts to recommended run-off distances and court infrastructure compliance to current standards.
  3. Identification of the life-cycle of all court surfaces, enclosure fencing, lighting structures, line marking, clubrooms, spectator amenities, net posts and nets.
  4. Notations on key site attributes, including drainage, vegetation and other items that may impact on the condition and performance of hard courts.
  5. Identification of maintenance, risk, safety and accessibility issues identified.

Key Highlights

  1. Extensive consultation with local, regional and state government, sport and community sectors.
  2. An audit of all existing facilities across the region to examine facility conditions and compliance with preferred AFL and Netball Victoria provision.
  3. Future facility provision based on projected participation identified and prioritised from community club level to elite pathway facility requirements.
