The roof that has adorned Elphin Sports Centre's multi-purpose hall since 1964 is set to be replaced following a $400,000 state budget grant.
With a construction date planned for early next year, Elphin president Peter Dunphy said it was the right time.
"It's been there since 1964 and when you're old like that, something has to give.
"We've had many repairs done for it and it's now gotten to the stage that it has to be replaced.
"We can't predict the weather as to how much it's going to rain and affect play because it really depends on which way the wind is blowing so people come down here and get very irate when we tell them they can't play."
Offering facilities at a national playing standard for basketball, badminton and table tennis, Elphin Sports Cetnre is used by 5000 people each week for a variety of activities including futsal and martial arts.
President Dunphy hopes that while he already sees his venue as one of the best in the state, these upgrades can secure that reputation through the community.
With the state government focusing on making Tasmania's population the healthiest in Australia by 2025, treasurer Peter Gutwein said the upgrades are to "ensure the facility is safe and accessible year-round."
"The government is committed to growing the number of people involved in sport and the state budget continues this, by maintaining the momentum and investing for growth," Gutwein said.
