While the official history of the Altona Sports Centre begins in 1988 you first need to understand how we got to that point and so our history starts back in late 1969 when some locals start a Netball competition on a single court in Newport. A few years later in late 1973, a group of men decide to form a Basketball Team to keep themselves fit and have some fun over the Football offseason.
From these small beginnings, the single court Netball competition grows into the Altona Netball Association and the single team of men become the Yarraville Club Basketball Club. With Lorraine Lindemann, a driving force for the Netball and Neil Shepheard the Basketball little did either realise that their futures would become entwined in 1988. With Lorraine seeking indoor courts to play on and Neil looking for a home for his club independently of each other they spoke with then City of Altona Councillor Danny Duane. Cr Duane realised that by bringing the two groups together a stadium could be established to house both sports. In meeting with Neil he set 3 terms, Yarraville had to become Altona, Green & Gold had to become Purple & Gold and they had to share the facility with Netball. At the same time, Lorraine was advised she could get her indoors courts if she agreed to share with Basketball. Fortunately for all of us both agreed to the terms and with Crown land identified at HD Graham Reserve the Altona Sports Centre Limited company was formed on 28th November 1989 and from there our history has occurred as follows:
At a cost of $17 million, the 4 court extension that includes a mezzanine level with views over a show court with a 1000 seat retractable stand is officially opened on 10th November 2021
