Club needs light­ing to use courts

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

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.
