New courts ready for action
The Wonthaggi Netball Court redevelopment is complete and ready for the upcoming season. Commencing in October 2016, the seven court project is now a showcase sporting facility for Bass Coast and will provide wonderful opportunities to all budding netballers across the Shire.
Captured as a key project within the Sport and Active Recreation Needs Assessment Study, the courts were funded through contributions from Bass Coast Shire Council, Sport and Recreation Victoria, Wonthaggi and District Netball Association and the Wonthaggi Power Football Netball Club.
The colourful plexipave surface will provide all weather and compliant playing areas. This will allow the courts to host top quality regular season games, tournaments and finals matches.The re-designed fencing, provides an open feel to the facility and will encourage passive use outside of formal training and game time. This too will improve access and provide opportunities for netball enthusiasts.
Bass Coast Shire Mayor, Cr Pamela Rothfield, commented on the significance of this project in representing Council’s commitment to recreation in Bass Coast.
“We are excited to now see the wonderful opportunities this major investment in sport presents local netball,” Cr Rothfield said.
“A big thank you to the Wonthaggi and District Netball Association and the Wonthaggi Power Netball Club for their tireless work in fundraising and volunteering through the delivery of this project, and, the continued support for netball through their competitions and programs. We can’t wait to see the upcoming season begin and these new courts put to great use!”
