FIVE netball courts in Medina are set to receive a facelift and new fences after the State Government provided $50,000 for the project.
Kwinana Mayor Carol Adams said the courts near Thomas Oval were originally built in the 1970s.
“We are confident this project will provide a big boost to netball within Kwinana and will support residents of all ages to be even more active and social,” Cr Adams said.
Sport and Recreation Minister Mia Davies said the funding was part of the latest round of sport and recreation projects through the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund.
“While these projects might seem small, they go a long way to improve the amenity for local communities,” Ms Davies said.
“These works can do a lot to help attract new members and welcome more people to participate in sport and active recreation.
“The provision of quality sport and recreation facilities is important for strong, connected communities.”
Offered twice a year by the Department of Sport and Recreation, small grants for projects under $200,000 are specifically for local sport and recreation clubs and local governments, requiring financial help to complete a project that might otherwise be out of reach.
Cr Adams said Kwinana was one of only eight grant recipients in the metropolitan area.
“We thank the State Government and the Department of Sport and Recreation for supporting the City’s broader health and wellbeing objectives,” she said.
