New era for net­ball build­ing

North West Telegraph - - Telegraph News - Sophia Con­stan­tine

The up­graded net­ball pavil­ion at Faye Glad­stone Net­ball Courts will be re­named Port Hed­land Net­ball Pavil­ion.

Town of Port Hed­land coun­cil­lors agreed unan­i­mously in favour of the new ti­tle at their meet­ing last Wed­nes­day.

Port Hed­land Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion sec­re­tary Re­bekah Wor­thing­ton said the as­so­ci­a­tion be­lieved re­nam­ing the build­ing helped to ac­knowl­edge the con­tri­bu­tion and hard work of vol­un­teers.

“The name of the courts ac­knowl­edges the won­der­ful Faye Glad­stone, who was the key in­sti­ga­tor in es­tab­lish­ing Port Hed­land Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion 45 years ago,” she said.

“In the 33 years since Faye Glad­stone left Port Hed­land, there have been a num­ber of vol­un­teers who have made an equally sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to net­ball in Port Hed­land.”

She said the new name cap­tured the pur­pose of the build­ing and its main op­er­a­tion with sim­plic­ity and clar­ity.

Ear­lier this year, the coun­cil en­dorsed the award of ten­der for the con­struc­tion of a new club­house at the courts, which is set to be com­pleted by the end of the year.
