Court upgrade at Great Western
Great Western Football Netball Club will benefit from a $100,000 upgrade to its netball court.
Northern Grampians Shire Council successfully applied for the Sport and Recreation Victoria grant and will administer the project.
Mayor Tony Driscoll said the project would see the netball court’s relocation at Great Western Recreation Reserve and include an upgrade to a dual-purpose netball-tennis court.
It will also include the installation of an acrylic surface for longer-term sustainability and installation of new lighting to meet training standards.
“It’ll be great for the Great Western community in terms of revamping their netball courts, which have become almost unplayable,” Cr Driscoll said.
“Great Western has a very vibrant netball community so it’s a great win for them and we’re appreciative of the State Government for their contribution.”
