In August, 2012 the MCC commenced a long-term partnership with Kew Heights Sports Club (KHSC), including upgrading the KHSC facilities – including lawn bowls, tennis and the clubhouse – located at 397 Barkers Road, Kew.
Through the MCC Foundation, MCC will invest approximately $3.5 million in upgrading the KHSC facilities.
KHSC has been renamed MCC–Kew Sports Club, with the newly-named club being responsible for managing the improved facilities on a day-to-day basis.
Ownership of the Barkers Road site will be transferred to the MCC Foundation and a lease established between MCC Foundation and MCC-Kew Sports Club to formalise these arrangements.
Following a tender process, Ireland Brown was appointed and work has commenced on the upgrading of existing facilities. The MCC-Kew Sports Club is scheduled to open in October, 2013.
The new facilities, when completed, will be of great value to existing KHSC members and especially for MCC members and the community, many of whom are on the waiting list for MCC membership.
Members will be kept informed of developments in the months ahead, including details of membership packages for the MCC-Kew Sports Club. Find out more at www.mcckew.com.au.
