The Murray Bombers will play on new netball courts towards the end of the year after work started on ripping up the old one.GEORDIE COWAN June 6, 2014 3:24am
Work has finally started on the long awaited netball court upgrades at Victoria Park.
The existing court was ripped up yesterday with the ground for the two new netball courts to be levelled by the end of today.
‘‘It’s a project that’s pretty exciting for the club,’’ Echuca Football Netball Club president Brett Stevens said.
‘‘It has been a long time in the making and has been a difficult task for Campaspe Shire to get it all in under budget and we really appreciate what they’ve been doing.’’
The courts are expected to be finished by August 11, factoring in time for wet weather.
This means the courts would be ready for the Kyabram game and the Goulburn Valley Netball League finals.
With the Murray Bombers netball teams without a home court for the next couple of months, matches will be played at Echuca and District Netball Association, Echuca United and Moama courts.
‘‘Our first choice is Echuca United, but when they’re at home, we will play at Moama,’’ Stevens said.
‘‘However, when they are both at home (like this weekend), we will play at EDNA.
‘‘It is an inconvenience but one we’re happy to have given that work has started.’’
Despite the netball matches being held outside of Victoria Park, spectators will still be charged an entry fee.
‘‘There will be a charge, but just how it will be done we’re not sure yet,’’ Stevens said.
‘‘If you pay at the netball, you can get into the football for free, but if you’re just coming for the netball then it is still the same as what it would be at Vic Park.
‘‘We are being guided by the league.’’
