Through the program, the Victorian Government has kicked in $1.36 million for construction of 8 new netball courts at Charles Mutton Reserve in Fawkner, 2 courts at JP Fawkner Reserve in Oak Park, and two courts at Cole Reserve in Pascoe Vale.
All 12 of these courts will be floodlit, giving local players and teams the flexibility they need to train more often and safely, later into the evening.
Planning will also start to deliver four new courts with lights at Sewell Reserve in Glenroy.
The upgrades in Moreland are part of the Inner City Netball Program, which is building 64 new netball courts where they are needed most in Melbourne, Darebin, Moreland and Yarra.
Netball is booming in Victoria, with more than 300,000 netballers across the state.
That’s why we’re building more court space to accommodate this growth and attract even more people to the court.
The program is helping local netball clubs, associations and schools field more teams and encourage more kids to get active.
The Victorian Government is partnering with Moreland City Council to deliver the new netball courts, which should be ready for action in early 2018.
