Re­gion ready to cel­e­brate new courts

The Western Star - - NEWS -

ALL the ac­tion will be court-side this week­end, as the new Mara­noa Net­ball Precinct is opened to the pub­lic.

The cel­e­bra­tion will be­gin at 9.30am at Bas­sett Park, with com­pe­ti­tion games and cake.

Funded jointly by the Queens­land Gov­ern­ment and Mara­noa Re­gional Coun­cil, the fa­cil­ity boasts eight new courts with a cush­ioned sur­face, club­house, seat­ing, paths and light­ing.

Coun­cil­lor Peter Flynn said the precinct would be a great as­set for the whole re­gion.

“Built by lo­cal builder Brett Pol­lock Con­struc­tions Pty Ltd, coun­cil is ex­cited to see the won­der­ful op­por­tu­ni­ties this ma­jor in­vest­ment in sport presents to lo­cal net­ballers across the Mara­noa,” Cr Flynn said.

“Coun­cil’s com­mit­ment to sup­port­ing sport and re­cre­ation is re­flected in the con­struc­tion of this fan­tas­tic fa­cil­ity, which is set to bring net­ballers from far and wide to our re­gion.”

“I en­cour­age res­i­dents and cur­rent and for­mer net­ballers to come along to the open­ing and check out this state-of-the-art fa­cil­ity.”

The club­house will be ded­i­cated to the late Mar­tine Wal­dron on Satur­day.

Mrs Wal­dron was a stal­wart of net­ball in the re­gion, dis­play­ing great com­mit­ment to grow­ing the sport for play­ers of all ages.
