  • Boroondara Netball Centre upgrade is complete providing improved facilities for players and spectators
  • Upgraded Netball Centre will encourage participation in sport amongst young women
  • The Coalition Government invested $25,000

North Balwyn’s netball players, spectators and volunteers today celebrated the Boroondara Netball Association’s 21st birthday with the completion of the facilities upgrade at the netball centre.

Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said the upgrade was a great example of maximising space by installing versatile fixtures such as storage units that convert into seating and kiosk facilities to support game day.

“This project will benefit local netball clubs, boost spectator attendance and encourage participation in sport amongst young women,” Minister Nash said.

“I aim to build the kinds of communities our children and grandchildren want to either stay in or come back to, and upgrading local sporting facilities definitely helps do that.

Federal Member for Kooyong Josh Frydenberg who was in North Balwyn for the opening today said he was thrilled to be part of the Association’s birthday celebrations.

“Twenty-one is such an important milestone—it is a real coming of age and shows the success and longevity of one of our local community-based sporting associations,” Mr Frydenberg said.

“The project will provide for players, spectators and supporters and alleviate the work required by club volunteers.

“Upgrades included the supply and installation of indoor cabinetry, outdoor lockable storage units that double as game day seating and an outdoor lockable storage unit that doubles as a kiosk servery.”

The project was jointly funded by the Coalition Government ($25,000) and the Boroondara Netball Association Inc. ($5,174).
