About FREE Centre

IMG_9584 copy.jpg

Maccabi property was purchased by Sports property Pty ltd in 2009 with the intention to develop the tennis courts into a sporting and activity centre.
The developers decided together to scrap their previous ideas and build a dream centre for the Jewish Russian Community of NSW.
The developers, The Rabbi’s and the core of the community worked together, tirelessly, for many years to make this dream a reality.
In 2017, the DA was approved by council for the development to go ahead.
Late 2018, the Construction Certificate is approved and the project for the new community center begins.
The Expected date of completion is in mid 2021.
