Club needs lighting to use courts
NETBALL: Nominations for the Monto mixed netball fixtures are closing soon, with the committee hoping games will be played on its new courts.
The new courts were unveiled late last year.
Committee secretary Tara Harm said members were pleased with them.
The netball association received a $165,000 grant in October 2017 for the courts.
According to Ms Harm, the issue is the lack of lighting.
“We don’t have any lighting at the new courts,” she said.
“Our mixed teams play every Wednesday night at 6.15pm and 7.15pm, when it’s dark, so we need lights to play.”
Ms Harm said the association had applied for a grant to fund the lighting.
“We’re hopeful to get it,” she said.
“Hopefully we will hear back mid to late February.
“Otherwise we will play on the old courts.”
Nominations for the new season of mixed netball in Monto close on Saturday, February 15.
