Beach feats favoured

Matamata Chronicle - - Sport -

Two ma­jor sports fa­cil­ity projects were com­pleted at Mata­mata Col­lege over the sum­mer hol­i­days and both will be avail­able for com­mu­nity use.

One pro­ject was a three-court beach vol­ley­ball com­plex and Mata­mata Col­lege’s Alan Munro said it wiould be put to very good use as the sport was pop­u­lar at the school.

‘‘Vol­ley­ball is al­ready very strong and the sum­mer ver­sion of the game is set to take off with many stu­dents keen to em­u­late the suc­cess of re­cent old girl and New Zealand rep­re­sen­ta­tive Kelsie Wills.’’

‘‘ For those in­ter­ested in try­ing the sport, watch out for the Beach So­cial competition set to kick off in the next few weeks,’’ he said.

Mr Munro said that funds were raised, the board of trustees’ gave ap­proval last year and they couldn’t have com­pleted the work with­out the sup­port of the Mata­mata com­mu­nity.

‘‘The beach vol­ley­ball con­cept has been on the Mata­mata Col­lege Sports Club’s draw­ing board for a few years and it is great to see it fi­nally in place and ready for use,’’ he said.

‘‘Pro­ject man­agers Dar­ryn Jaimieson and Leanne and Mur­ray Wil­son have col­lab­o­rated to pro­duce a first rate com­plex along with out­stand­ing sup­port from Wil­son’s Sand, Dal­tons, Rex Barnes En­gi­neer­ing, Blain Tem­ple­meyer, Bell Con­tract­ing and Clark Smith.’’

The sec­ond pro­ject was an up­grade of the cricket nets and again, it was com­mu­nity col­lab­o­ra­tion that had en­sured a great re­sult, Mr Munro said.

‘‘This was the re­sult of the Mata­mata Col­lege Sports Club and crick­eters from Hin­uera Sports com­ing to­gether.’’

‘‘Many of the Hin­uera play­ers who use the nets pro­vided labour and we now have a fa­cil­ity that col­lege and com­mu­nity crick­eters will ben­e­fit from.’’

Mata­mata Sports Club chair­man Nigel Kit­tow was thrilled with the new fa­cil­i­ties and said he was par­tic­u­larly pleased that all those who had sup­ported the club’s fundrais­ing ef­forts could see some­thing tan­gi­ble for their fi­nan­cial con­tri­bu­tions.
