Gymnastics Victoria Facilities Plan
Gymnastics Victoria (GV) established a gymnastics-specific facility guide and strategy plan in 2014. The Plan outlines the social, health and economic benefits of gymnastics, as well as providing direction on current facility provisions across the state and areas where facilities need to be established or upgraded to meet current and future needs.

Gymnastics is growing at a rapid rate in Victoria, and has been the fastest growing major participation sport in the state over the past four years. Gymnastics has grown by 52% in the last 10 years, with over 54,000 affiliated members and 225,000 general participants in 2016. With this rapid growth, 62% of clubs across the state currently have waiting lists.
As part of the GV strategy, GV has employed a dedicated staff member to assist working with clubs, communities, state & local government and all stakeholders to grow and adequately facilitate the sport of Gymnastics. Our dedicated facility manager can assist with;
- Extension of a current facility
- Renovation of a current facility
- Relocation to a bigger facility
- Locating an additional facility
It is important that any facility development is well planned, and aligns with the club’s programs to meet current and future demand. Extensive consultation between various stakeholders is essential in ensuring success of a facility project. Analysing the needs of the club/organisation are crucial and GV encourages its affiliated clubs to seek guidance to maximise the use of their relevant space to ensure the safety of it’s gymnasts and staff while maximising best commercial practice.
