Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Council secured funding through Sport and Recreation Victoria to contribute to the development of a new Gymnastics facility in Lucknow, Bairnsdale.

The East Gippsland Gymnastics Centre is based at the Lucknow Recreation Reserve, complementing and sitting beside the existing squash and table tennis centre.

Site construction activities commenced on 9 May 2022 and are now complete.

Funding for this project was provided by Council, State Government and the East Gippsland Gymnastics Club.




The East Gippsland Gymnastics Club is community based and offers classes from pre-kindergarten to mature-age adults.

This new home for the Club features two Olympic-sized inground trampolines and an open-ended trampoline that flows into a six-square-metre landing bag.

A "ninja zone" includes a scaffolding rig and other challenging obstacles.

A mezzanine viewing area with associated seating and heating complement the facility.

Since relocating to the new facility, the Club has experienced an increase in participation and membership, especially now trampolining and a fit-for-purpose ninja program are on offer.

Council would like to congratulate the East Gippsland Gymnastics Club and thank our contractors Eastern Victoria Construction Group Pty Ltd (EVCG).
