Almost One Million Dollar Upgrade of Hastings Netball Courts
Almost $1 million from the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government will be spent on a major redevelopment of the Macquarie Park netball courts including an upgrade of the playing surface, new disabled access toilet and clubhouse improvements.
Member for Port Macquarie Leslie Williams joined Hastings Valley Netball Association President, Helen Miles and local netball players to announce the successful $919,028 grant through the ClubGRANTS Category 3 scheme.
“The netball facilities at Macquarie Park are well-loved and without question in need of an upgrade with some courts almost unusable because of the deterioration of the playing surface,” Mrs Williams said.
“This redevelopment is a major win for the local netball community with 150 teams and 1200 players using this facility.
“The NSW Government is focused on increasing participation in sport and recreation and our region deserves this investment,” Mrs Williams said.
Deputy Premier Troy Grant said the NSW Government is committed to enhancing local facilities to meet the needs of thriving regional communities.
“I look forward to the local community enjoying this first-class sporting precinct that will be home to the region’s sporting stars now and well into the future,” Mr Grant said.
“This significant upgrade to Macquarie Park is a terrific boost to the region and well-deserved by the passionate netball community.
“The NSW Liberals & Nationals government is delivering on its election commitment to focus Category 3 ClubGRANTS on community sports and cultural facilities and disaster preparedness and relief projects,” Mr Grant said.
