Netball is big business on the Coast
NETBALL is big business on the Central Coast and the Woy Woy Peninsula is being recognised at a key centre for the sport with a $1.45M project.
Construction of a new amenities building and clubhouse is now underway at Lemon Grove Netball Courts in Etta long.
The project is funded by the Australian Government under the Community Development Grants Program. 
Federal Member for Robertson Lucy Wicks said the amenities and clubhouse at Lemongrove Netball Courts were rundown and not fit-for-purpose. 
“We know how important improved sporting facilities are on the Peninsula and it’s fantastic to see this project underway.” 
“The Peninsula Netball Club needs facilities that reflect the growing population in our region and provide accessibility for people with a disability and the ageing population. 
“This is one of many projects the Federal Government is investing in to deliver better sports infrastructure on the Peninsula, including an $8.25M upgrade of the Peninsula Recreation Precinct, $500,000 to build women’s changerooms and upgrade the facilities at James Browne Oval in Woy Woy and $80,000 for a digital scoreboard at Woy Woy
Oval for the Rugby League and Union clubs. 
“Both the existing clubhouse and toilet buildings are being demolished to make way for the new consolidated and accessible amenities building. The design includes accessible toilets, a change room, canteen, control room, media room, clubroom and storage areas, which will meet the needs of current and future users, “ she said. 
“Council remains committed to delivering and maintaining quality sports facilities across the Central Coast region, and this project demonstrates what positive outcomes can be sought for our community through collaborative partnership.”
Woy Woy Peninsula Netball Association President Sharon Bailey said the organisation was “extremely excited by the new clubhouse and sports amenities project”. 
“This project has been in planning for a number of years following a substantial grant from the Australian Government. We look forward to working closely with Central Coast Council to deliver a new clubhouse, canteen and amenities for our members and a wonderful facility for our netball community,” Ms Bailey said. 
Construction is due for completion by May with the construction schedule designed to minimise community user impact.
Once complete, the new amenities building will complement the resurfaced netball courts and lighting upgrades that Council undertook in 2019.
