Table tennis club invite
Horsham Table Tennis Association leaders have called on the community to ‘vote’ for a facilities upgrade at the organisation’s new headquarters.
Association member Jeff Pekin said the group’s Pick My Project application had progressed to the next stage and was available to be voted on.
Pick My Project is a Victorianfirst community grants program, with funding of at least $1-million for each metropolitan and regional area.
The Horsham Table Tennis Association project includes restoration and refurbishment of the association’s new home in Harriet Street, to ensure the building is at a ‘minimum safe standard’ for table tennis and other community activities.
The project will include wall and floor repairs, upgraded indoor lighting to the minimum standard for table tennis and outdoor security lighting.
It will also involve investigating and repairing building stormwater and sewer drainage issues.
“The key activities at the cen- tre will be table tennis, a dance school and other community activities such as meeting rooms and a function centre,” Mr Pekin said.
“Table tennis users, including abled and disabled players, elderly players and schools will have access to a safe facility.
“The dance school will cater for junior and senior dancers of all ages.”
Horsham Table Tennis Association provides programs for able-bodied and disabled players, elderly adults, primary and secondary schools programs and elite-player coaching programs.
The centre will also cater for dance classes for all ages, community group meeting rooms, a community function centre and space for U3A – University of the Third Age – courses.
“The centre will also be available for sundry community activities on an as-required basis,” Mr Pekin said.
People can visit pickmyproject. vic.gov.au and search Horsham Table Tennis Centre to vote by September 17.
