Indigo Shire Council engaged iDwala for the detailed design and reconstruction of the Wahgunyah Recreation Reserve Tennis and Netball Courts. The project scope included the full reconstruction of two existing concrete tennis courts into two acrylic tennis/netball multisport courts, the reconstruction of two synthetic grass tennis courts and the resurfacing of one existing asphalt acrylic netball court.
As part of the design and construction process, special consideration was given to delivering accessible and inclusive facilities that would ensure all participants and spectators were able access and depart the entire facility easily and safely.
As such, the facility now features wider walkways and entry gates to allow for ease of mobility. Spectator seating, player shelters and picnic tables all now offer designated wheelchair access along with uniquely designed water fountains that are accessible for all abilities.
A lighting upgrade was carried out with an advanced LED system installed that not only creates reduced spill lighting at nighttime and optimal competition lighting, but also features lower control panels for wheelchair users. The system also incorporates a relay switch to allow users to turn lights off and travel to the exits with convenient and safe lighting, before the system turns off completely. The lights can also be operated remotely via an app.
With inclusiveness at the heart of this project, Wahgunyah Recreation Reserve now offers wheelchair friendly facilities that will benefit both participants and spectators alike, whilst also meeting the court requirements of Tennis and Netball Victoria.
