The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

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.
