Region ready to celebrate new courts
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.
