Great Facilities, Great Results, Great Fun
Melbourne University Sport is planning some exciting new Capital Works Projects in 2012. These projects are consistent with the Strategic Plan For Sport and MU Sport's vision that 'the University of Melbourne will be the leading Australian University for sporting performance, level of participation and quality of facilities.'
The planning and implementation of these important capital works is an exciting time for Clubs, Club members and individual users of the facilities in the Sporting Precinct. The three projects currently planned include the Sport Centre refurbishment, the replacement of the Main Oval Pavilion, and the Sport Capital Improvement Plan. The Sport Centre refurbishment construction is due to commence in mid 2012, while the Main Oval Pavilion is currently in feasibility stage with an expected start date of early 2013.[more]
