A major redevelopment of Alexandra Park has been proposed to better cater for sport, recreation and community needs in Mornington.

The Alexandra Park Redevelopment Project provides the opportunity to redevelop and fully integrate football, netball, cricket and community facility needs to cater for all levels of sport, from introductory programs to senior competitions. It will bring together some of the Mornington community’s strongest partnerships to create a unique facility where football, netball, cricket and community users can consolidate their programs and resources and align objectives with a facility that reflects each stakeholder’s commitment to growth and community program delivery and access.  

The proposal is being overseen by the Alexandra Park Committee with the support of Mornington Football Netball Club, Peninsula Raiders AFL Masters Football Club, Mornington Cricket Club, disability support organisation Wallara Australia and key community and sport stakeholders.

Features of the redevelopment will include:

·      A multi-purpose pavilion and amenities that focus on both sport and community use;

·      Quality unisex football, netball and umpire change rooms that cater for diversity in participation;

·      Construction of six new cricket training nets with removable netting to support a multi-use netball court and enable hosting of regional netball tournaments;

·      Demolition of existing public amenities and consolidation within a new redeveloped pavilion to ensure accessibility and address public safety concerns; and,

·      Lighting upgrades to AFL night competition standard to support participation growth and provide opportunity for competition expansion and development for both football and cricket.

 

When constructed, the redevelopment will provide a facility that encourages the continued development of club and community programs based at Alexandra Park.  It will also help the Mornington area attract regional sporting events and deliver a purpose-built base for essential training and support programs offered by Wallara Australia.

The Peninsula Raiders were established in 1996 and field teams in the Supers and Supers Reserves for over-35s as well as an over-45s team. The Raiders offer a family-friendly environment with many functions planned around home games at Alexandra Park as well as providing an opportunity for men over 35 to stay active and engaged.

The Peninsula Raiders have been a tenant at the ground since 1996. They support kids getting into football and staying active by setting an example. They sell more Raiders jumpers in kids’ sizes than they do of their own jumpers.

The AFL took an overseer role about five years ago and this has raised the profile of all AFL Masters clubs (formerly known as Superules). AFL Masters caters for players aged 35 years and over who want to continue playing the sport they love in a family-friendly environment. There are more than 120 AFL Masters clubs throughout Australia and that number is growing, and many include former AFL players among their ranks. Each year a national Masters carnival attracts more than 800 players and 1500-2000 spectators and support staff, generating an estimated $10 million for the host city’s economy. Vic Metro has 33 clubs made up of 85 teams in the over-35, over-40, over-45 and over-50 age groups.

There are player welfare officers in each team and all players are encouraged to look out for their mates. They are engaged in fundraisers for many men’s health programs, and have speakers from BeyondBlue and other organisations to visit the club and ensure everyone’s looking out for each other.
