Status: proposed

A proposed fit-for-purpose redevelopment of the NTCA Sports Complex in Launceston will provide expanded facilities to meet the needs and demands of the Northern sporting community, including some of the region's most popular and fastest-growing sporting codes.

The City of Launceston has outlined proposals for a future redevelopment of Launceston's premier multi-use sporting facility.

The NTCA Sports Complex is currently home to five community sport clubs across three codes — cricket, AFL and soccer — and representatives of those five clubs plus the NTCA board make up the facilities management group, which oversees all operational planning for precinct users.

In 2023, Council began consultation with the facility management group to develop a new masterplan that captures the strategic objectives and future requirements of the facility. 

It is now proposed to refurbish both the NTCA number one and number two grounds, provide new indoor and outdoor cricket training facilities, develop new improved vehicular access and parking for 90 more vehicles and an eye-catching new shared function centre that includes a gymnasium, significantly more change rooms and toilets, a new commercial kitchen and a function centre capable of seating 350 people.

It is also proposed to broaden the scope of the master plan to include the Launceston Tennis Centre and the Elphin Sports Stadium.

The City of Launceston will soon begin the next round of engagement with precinct users and various sports' governing bodies to refine the concept masterplan.
