Churchill reserve netball courts get funding for upgrade


Mayor Cr Justin King announced on Saturday 18 July that the Benalla Netball Association has been successful in its application to the State Government for funding to upgrade the Churchill Reserve Netball Courts.

The funding of $80,000 has been made available through the State Government’s Victorian Country Football and Netball program.

The netball precinct at the Churchill reserve hosts approximately 70% of organised domestic netball competition in Benalla Rural City.

The upgrade of the courts was identified by the Council recently as the highest priority capital upgrade on the Churchill reserve, and will include resurfacing, line-marking and reconfiguring existing lighting to make the courts compliant with Netball Victoria’s requirements.

“The upgrade will mean we have benchmark facilities and a safe environment for all of the courts’ users,” said Mayor Cr Justin King.

“The Council is committed to promoting healthy active lifestyles, and our sporting reserves encourage the take up of sport, particularly for young people,” he said.

“The upgraded facilities will help ensure young people from diverse backgrounds have easy and equitable access to sport and pathways into regional and state competition.

“Congratulations to the Benalla Netball Association. Their tireless efforts fundraising over several years have made this possible through the contribution of a significant amount toward the project.

“Thankyou also to all those that assisted in the application stage and we look forward to working closely over the 2015/2016 period to deliver this project.”
