Summary
Edinburgh Gardens Sporting Community

The Edinburgh Gardens Sporting Community is a collective of:
· Fitzroy/Carlton Auskick
· Fitzroy Football Club
· Fitzroy Junior Football Club
· Fitzroy Tennis Club
· Edinburgh Cricket Club

These clubs utilise a cluster of facilities within Edinburgh Gardens that incorporate the historic grandstand, community rooms and tennis pavilion. The ESGC have recognised a common set of issues attributed to this precinct that will constrain their ability to grow and promote community participation into the future. With the local population growing and female participation on the rise, the community’s passion for local sport is not met with facilities that are fit for purpose. Current facilities do not provide adequate space to participate, spectate or perform the administrative functions that support the day-to-day running of the clubs.

The current scenario has culminated in two distinct problems that the EGSC hope can be addressed:
· Enormous demand on shared facilities restricts the ability of clubs to foster and grow community participation
· Outdated facilities stifle the precinct’s potential to be a leading example of community sport in Victoria

Challenge 1: Enormous demand on shared facilities restricts the ability of clubs to foster and grow community participation
· Clubs are reaching capacity.
· Female participation is intensifying.
· Demand on facilities is rising.

Challenge 2: Outdated facilities stifle the precinct’s potential to be a leading example of community sport in Victoria
· Current facilities are not fit for purpose.
· The financial sustainability of clubs is at risk.
