THE new Marna Reserve netball courts have opened at Dromana.
The $530,000 upgrade is open to sporting clubs and the community.
Marna Reserve is home to Dromana Netball Club and Dromana Football and Netball Club.
Mornington Peninsula Shire funded the new courts from the council’s 2020-21 Budget as part of the Sports Capacity Plan. Four outdoor courts have been renovated into two new netball courts which comply with Netball Victoria standards. Other improvements have been made to the lighting, fencing and surrounding landscaping and paving.
The renewal of the courts will provide safe and compliant courts of a higher training standard. “The refurbishment of the netball courts at Marna Reserve, Dromana is welcome news,” Cr Antonella Celi said. “I look forward to the players training on high quality courts and bringing on those home wins.”
Cr Debra Mar said it was fundamental that the council provide and maintain all sporting facilities. “I’m proud the shire has constructed two upgraded courts that meet Netball Victoria standards.”
Cr Kerri McCafferty said: “The courts are a great initiative and will enhance social connections and contribute to the health and wellbeing for so many in our community.”
