The mighty Colac Tigers will roar into action and start their 2017 in style thanks to a revamp of the netball change facilities at Central Reserve.
Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney today officially opened the $537,000 development of Colac’s new netball pavilion.
Grassroots football and netball competitions are booming, with more than 350 new female footy teams across the nation and more than 300,000 people playing netball in Victoria.
The upgrade at Central Reserve means more locals can get on the court and play netball closer to home, in modern facilities they deserve.
It features new and upgraded netball change rooms and amenities, dedicated umpires facilities, administration and storage.
These new change rooms will go a long way to supporting the Colac Football Netball Club to grow its ranks and encourage more people to get involved and stay active.
The Andrews Labor Government believes every player deserves equal access to equal facilities – that’s why we delivered $100,000 towards this upgrade from our Country Football Netball Program.
Ms Tierney thanked project partners including the Commonwealth Government, Colac Otway Shire Council and the Colac Football Netball Club.
