Let the games begin - Maranoa Netball Precinct set to open this weekend!

Don’t pass on this once in a lifetime celebration, as Council opens the new Maranoa Netball Precinct this weekend.

The family-friendly celebrations will take place on Saturday, 21 April 2018 at Bassett Park, Roma from 9.30am with a netball competition and celebratory cake to enjoy.

With construction of the netball facility funded by the Queensland Government and Maranoa Regional Council it boasts eight netball courts with a superior cushioned surface, clubhouse, seating, paths and lighting.

The event will also include the dedication of the Martine Waldron Clubhouse, in memory of Martine’s dedication and commitment to netball in the Maranoa.

Councillor Peter Flynn, Portfolio Chair for Youth, Recreation and Sport said the precinct will 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 Queensland Government provided $850,000 to Maranoa Regional Council to fund the construction of The Maranoa Netball Precinct to enable Queenslanders to participate in sport and recreation activities. Maranoa Regional Council provided an additional $483,873 toward the facility.

The Queensland Government also provided $100,000 for the Lighting Maranoa Netball Courts Project, to light 4 additional courts, under its $200 million Works for Queensland program.

Maranoa Regional Council has also completed ancillary works, incorporating road and drainage works for the site, with a contribution from Santos LTD of $45,000.
