Sport in the Maranoa is set to benefit with Roma to receive a state-of-the-art netball complex. The complex will be located at Bassett Park, and will include eight netball courts, four team shelters, change rooms, amenities, lighting, clubhouse with servery and car parking.
Councillor Peter Flynn, Portfolio Chair for Youth, Recreation and Sport said the funding is a huge boost for netball throughout the region and beyond. “A high quality and modern facility for our youngsters to stay active, the complex is set to become a community asset hosting many activities as well as attracting events to the region.” Mr Flynn said. “Attracting the likes of state, regional and Masters Games competitions for netball to the Maranoa will not only support the region’s current netball players but will also encourage future players to get involved.”
The project will be the first in a series of planned upgrades and new developments at Bassett Park, enabling the facility to grow as the region’s number one sporting facility.
