The State Netball and Hockey Centre project provides more opportunities for women of all ages to get active and strive for the best, on and off the courts.
The upgrade will cement Parkville as the home for netball and hockey in Australia with six new indoor netball courts, a new indoor hockey facility, a high-performance strength and conditioning gym and a home for Netball Victoria and Hockey Victoria.
We’re well on our way with the opening of the new northern entrance on 27 February 2020.
The northern entrance is conveniently located in front of the main car park and is a short walk to the State Netball and Hockey Centre tram stop, better connecting the centre to public transport.
Once complete, the new state-of-the-art facility will cater for all levels of competition – providing playing fields and courts for grassroots teams, and a major training base for elite athletes in both sports – and be a world-class venue to host major state, national and international tournaments like the FIH Hockey Pro-League.
The redevelopment will also establish the Women in Sport Leadership Centre, which will kick start initiatives to drive cultural change and grow female leadership in sport.
The centre is used by more than 6,000 people every week; 80 per cent of whom are girls and women.
The project is part of the $241.6 million package unveiled by the Victorian Government in 2018; the biggest investment in women’s and community sport in Victoria’s history.
