The project is part of the 64 netball courts being rolled out across Melbourne courtesy of the $9.6 million Inner City Netball Program.
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 play netball in inner city hubs like Richmond.
The three netball courts will come complete with floodlighting and will develop further opportunities for female participation and leadership in sport during school hours, and more space for twilight local netball competitions.
Other Inner City Netball Program projects in the area include two new courts with floodlights to be built at Richmond West Primary School, four courts at Richmond High School, and four courts and pavilion underway at Ryan’s Reserve, home of the 950 strong Richmond Netball Association.
Through the Inner City Netball Program, the Victorian Government is building more netball courts and upgrading old ones where they’re needed most, ensuring everyone who wants to play has access to safe and modern facilities.
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 City of Yarra to deliver these new netball courts, which should be ready for action in late 2018.
