A $9.1 million dollar redevelopment of Roy Dore Reserve will bring the heart of Carrum to life, thanks to capital injections of $4.8 million and $4 million respectively from the council and state government. Sport Australia, AFL Victoria, Cricket Victoria and the Carrum Patterson Lakes Sports Club have also made contributions.

Long Beach Tennis Club will gain a new pavilion plus resurfaced courts, while a host of clubs will share the new two storey pavilion, which is complete with a bar and function spaces overlooking both ovals. Landscaping, lighting, cricket net upgrades, scoreboard upgrades and fencing are also on the agenda for the project starting in late 2019.

Indicative project timeline:

Stage 1 (late 2019-2020)

  • Two storey pavilion
  • Cricket net upgrades
  • Oval One lighting

Stage 2 (2021-2022)

  • Four sand-filled artificial grass tennis courts 
  • Two acrylic hard tennis courts
  • Oval Two lighting

Stage 3 (2022-2023)

  • Tennis pavilion
  • New scoreboards
  • Oval One fence


In 2013, the Lion’s senior football side was reborn, after folding in the mid ’90s and their new den will leave competitors envious. The new facilities could even help pave the way for a pitch to join the Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football Netball League’s speculated third division, which was the Lion’s original league prior to joining the Southern Football Netball League.


New facilities will be shared by the Carrum Patterson Lakes Sports Club, Carrum Cowboys Football Club, Radio Carrum, Carrum Cricket Club, Carrum Patterson Lakes Junior Football Club, Carrum Patterson Lakes Football Netball Club, Long Beach Tennis Club, and Melbourne Thunder Masters Touch Rugby Club.
