Premier Mark McGowan today visited the Kingsway Regional Sporting Complex to unveil site plans for the brand-new Wanneroo Netball Association Pavilion.
“Grassroots sport builds healthier, more connected communities and I commend the Member for Wanneroo for fighting hard for this project.” Premier Mark McGowan said.
“My Government is focused on ensuring Wanneroo and its surrounding suburbs have quality places to play sport and keep healthy.”
Construction of the $3.1 Million facility will begin in February, thanks to a $500,000 election commitment led by Wanneroo MLA Sabine Winton. The remainder of the project is funded by the City of Wanneroo.
“As an avid netballer myself, I know how important it is for local teams to have access to high-quality sporting facilities.” Wanneroo MLA Sabine Winton said.
Important community sporting project will deliver:
- Change rooms,
- First aid room,
- Improved toilets,
- Storage and kitchen facilities,
- Umpires’ rooms.
Successful contractor for the project will be announced shortly.
“On behalf of the City of Wanneroo community, I would like to acknowledge and thank the State Government for their $500,000 contribution to this much-needed project.” City of Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said.
More than 6,000 club members and 500 teams will benefit from the improved facilities with the upgrades set to alleviate the current shortage of change room space, and support increased local participation in the sport.
It is expected that the Kingsway Regional Sporting Complex project will be completed in time for the 2020 netball season.
