ERSK­INE Park Ea­gles Net­ball Club has wel­comed im­prove­ments to its home court, Chameleon Re­serve.

Af­ter pe­ti­tions from out­go­ing club pres­i­dent Lynn Deuis, Pen­rith Coun­cil re­ceived a State Govern­ment grant of $25,000 to im­prove the re­serve by in­stalling a new amenity and stor­age build­ing next to the net­ball court, which is cur­rently be­ing resur­faced.

The amenity build­ing com­prises two toi­let units, an ac­ces­si­ble toi­let, and a uni­sex am­bu­lant fa­cil­ity.

Mrs Deuis said the im­prove­ments were “very wel­comed” by the club, which has grown from 13 teams to 33 teams in six years.

“The help re­ceived from the coun­cil­lors was fan­tas­tic, but I would like to ac­knowl­edge the em­ploy­ees of Pen­rith Coun­cil in the recre­ation depart­ment who were ab­so­lutely vi­tal in the process of hav­ing th­ese fa­cil­i­ties turned from plans on pa­per to the fa­cil­i­ties we have here to­day,” Mrs Deuis said.
