Sunshine Coast Council has completed construction of two new netball courts in the hinterland town of Cooran and the Cooroora Netball Club now has a place to train and stage competitions.
Division 12 Councillor Tony Wellington said the Cooroora Netball Club is one of the largest on the Sunshine Coast.
“It draws on players from Cooran, Pomona, Boreen Point and Federal,” Cr Wellington said.
“Membership has grown to nearly 100 players.”
“The completion of the courts will allow for social competitions over summer and I’m sure they’ll get constant use during the coming competitive season.”
Club President Julie Hawkins said council had done a fantastic job on construction of the courts.
“I really want to thank Councillor Wellington and all of council, for making our dream for new courts come true,” Ms Hawkins said.
Councillor Wellington said the courts are positioned on the north-east corner of Chris Kenny Park, next to the Pomona Cooran Amateur Rugby League field.
“Selection of the site for the courts has taken into account potential flooding issues as well as minimising impacts on existing flora and fauna,” he said.
“The two netball courts meet Australian Standards and have synpave covering, line marking and height adjustable netball hoops.
“This will be a terrific community asset to be enjoyed by locals for many years to come.”
