Waverley District Netball Association (WDNA) are pleased to announce that we have been successful in receiving $890,000 from the Australian Government through the Community Development Grants Programme. This funding was an election commitment pledged by Julia Banks MP.
We are very excited as funding will upgrade the twelve existing non-compliant netball courts including the subservice level, to bring the facility up to twelve compliant courts, meeting the current Australian Netball standards and meeting Regional Facility requirements (8+ courts) of Netball Victoria. The upgrade will ensure drainage and retainer walls are adequate to improve the longevity of the courts. Fencing for safety and security of the WDNA members will also be upgraded. The funding will install much needed shelters for our spectators & members. Plus, new 100 lux lighting to all 12 courts which will enable our teams to train at night.
Currently in the detailed design stage of the project and we will commence work October 2017, which means that the Spring Season will finish late September. We are sure that you will be as excited as we are with these upgrades, which is part of our overall strategy of upgrading the facilities at WDNA.
