Court up­grade at Great West­ern

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

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.”
