Cockburn Gazette - - SPORT -

RE­DE­VEL­OPED fa­cil­i­ties at the Fre­man­tle Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion were of­fi­cially un­veiled re­cently. Premier Mark McGowan and Sport and Recre­ation Min­is­ter Mick Mur­ray vis­ited Frank Gib­son Park to un­veil the $2.24 mil­lion re­de­vel­op­ment, in­clud­ing a pavil­ion, first aid room, toi­lets, um­pires’ room, can­teen, kitchen and ad­min­is­tra­tion ar­eas. Mr Mur­ray said thou­sands of young net­ballers would now get to en­joy the new fa­cil­i­ties. “Fre­man­tle Net­ball As­so­ci­a­tion is a fix­ture for thou­sands of WA fam­i­lies, with many young girls forg­ing a life­long love for sport at the fa­cil­ity,” he said. “Not only will these up­grades set the as­so­ci­a­tion up for the next gen­er­a­tion and be­yond, the project has been built lo­cally, sup­port­ing jobs in a range of in­dus­tries. “I’d also like to com­mend the as­so­ci­a­tion for their sig­nif­i­cant con­tri­bu­tion to this project. “Fundrais­ing is such an im­por­tant part of grass­roots sport and it is great to see the club come to­gether to fund a pro­por­tion of this project it­self.” Bic­ton MLA Lisa O’Mal­ley and Fre­man­tle MLA Si­mone McGurk said the as­so­ci­a­tion de­served the up­grades.
