Imagine Melbourne Sports Hub as the central place to go for all your health and wellness needs – from maintaining a healthy lifestyle to preventing disease and recovering from illness and injury. Imagine a Hub that provides state-of –the-art facilities to elite sports and everyday users. A financially successful Hub that is socially connected and has staff that develop into leaders in all aspects of life.

That’s exactly what the Trust and Executive Team imagined when developing Melbourne Sports Hub’s 2017-2027 Strategic Plan. The plan outlines an ambitious vision for the business with key milestones to help achieve the overall objective. You can read our plan here.
