Latrobe City Council and Monash University have announced a strategic alliance for the management of the Monash Churchill Leisure Centre, with the existing three-year lease arrangement with Monash University, likely to continue.
Latrobe City Mayor, Cr Brendan Jenkins described the announcement as a win-win situation for both the University and Council.
"Having a leisure centre on the doorstep of a world class University is an important additional attraction for students, who in this case are able to participate in a wide range of activities that would not otherwise be readily available," Cr Jenkins said.
"Additionally, Latrobe’s citizens greatly benefit from the expertise of Monash Sport, which oversees the day to day operation of the Centre on behalf of Council.
"The Gippsland Campus of Monash University and Latrobe City have a number of plans for joint promotions and we expect to include the Churchill Centre as part of those plans," he said.
Mr James Voght, Director of Monash Sport, said the University was keen to build on their existing relationship with Latrobe City. "We are eager to promote the use of these facilities to both students and residents and to help guarantee the comfort and safety of all users," he said.
Mr Voght also introduced new Centre Manager, Rob Paterson. "Rob brings a wealth of knowledge and experience from the recreation industry to the Centre having previously worked as an administrator for the Victorian Institute of Sport, managed the Feelgood Fitness Centre in Albury, as well as being the strength and conditioning coach for the Port Melbourne Football Club," Mr Voght said.
Mr Paterson’s sporting interests include Australian Rules, Triathlon, Swimming, Cycling, and Strength and Conditioning.
The Monash Churchill Leisure Centre is open 6am to 9pm Monday to Friday, 9am - 6pm Saturday, and 10am to 5pm Sunday. Enquiries can be made to Rob Patterson, telephone 5122 6513.
