The $1.29m Council redevelopment of the four netball courts at Lloyd Park in Langwarrin is now providing a safer and more accessible training space for local clubs.
The completed courts are home to the Langwarrin Netball Club, who contributed $25,000 to the redevelopment, with Langwarrin Football Netball Club also utilising the facility. The upgrade provides both clubs with a safer environment to play and train and new lighting also increases the time courts can be used – allowing both clubs to expand the programs on offer. $25,000 was also provided by Sports Australia to complete the project.
“Both clubs have scored a major win with this redevelopment, but also the wider community. Support for grassroots sport is integral to ensuring healthy active lifestyles for all junior and senior athletes. Having these facilities accessible to the local public will encourage participation and inclusion within Langwarrin’s sporting community,” said Langwarrin Netball Club President, Gary Zeuschner.
“Around 2000 athletes currently use the Lloyd Park netball courts. Lloyd Park it is great to see the much needed redevelopment of the netball courts taking place. These upgrades will now pave the way for Langwarrin Netball Club to host tournaments and provide an alternate venue for local schools.
“We look forward to seeing the growth of community sport participation that we are sure will result from this amazing development. It is great to see Council continue to fund projects like this,” Gary said.
