The City is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from new or existing volleyball clubs to be located at the new Visko Park Sports and Recreation Facility.
To determine the most suitable applicant for the outdoor beach volleyball courts, potential clubs will be required to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI). This process will require applicants to provide past (if applicable), present and future information in regards to financial records, proposed club growth, plans to engage the community and surrounding suburbs of Yangebup, and an endorsement from Volleyball WA.
Once all applications have been received, a panel will use the following factors to determine the most suitable club:
- Community needs
- Club growth and registration numbers
- Links to the local community
- Long term sustainability
- Support from the State Sporting Association.

The City of Cockburn owns the facility; however it will be under a lease management agreement with the Cockburn Bowling Club. The prospective club will undergo a peppercorn lease, with only outlaying costs. This is to be negotiated with the City closer to the time of the facility being completed.
Prior to completing an EOI, it’s important that clubs forecast their growth and maximum numbers for the facility. These figures are a guide and what the City of Cockburn consider optimal to maintain a good playing surface in the area.
The facility will feature four outdoor beach volleyball courts. These courts will be ideal for training sessions, social events, sporting schools programs and general public use.
The beach volleyball courts will include:
- Permanent volleyball poles
- Boundary lines
- Sand anchors
- Court lighting
It is essential that the details are clear, concise and cover your club plans for the future. Following the review of all EOI's, clubs will be notified of the outcome by phone and official letter.
The City of Cockburn Club Development Officer will work closely with the successful club to assist with their establishment at the new facility.
All EOI's must be submitted by 4pm Friday 19 January 2018. The City is happy to meet with any clubs and discuss proposals or application details prior to this time.
