For Lorne netballers, 2020 marks a new year, new coach and new netball pavilion.
With pre-season underway, Lorne Football Netball Club netball president Carly Enticott is excited for the next 12 months both on and off the court. As part of the Stribling Reserve Pavilions Redevelopment project, construction of a new netball pavilion will be underway this year.
“It’s going to provide all of our participants – from people aged 3 to 65 – with safe, warm and spacious change areas,” Ms Enticott said. “We’re especially excited it’s going to have multiple functions and provide the wider community with a brilliant facility. Stribling Reserve is the cornerstone of our community and is integral to the health and wellbeing of so many – from school students to sportspeople to community groups.”
Ms Enticott is one of numerous community members who have teamed up with Surf Coast Shire Council to help deliver the Stribling Reserve Pavilions Redevelopment project. The project will also see an upgrade of the main pavilion including the social rooms – scheduled to be completed by the end of December 2021.
The netball pavilion will provide netballers with new amenities that are more comfortable, functional and meet Netball Victoria requirements. It will feature change rooms and amenities for home and away teams, an accessible toilet, an office, first aid/trainers’ room, umpire amenities and storage. It can also be used by the wider community as a space to hire.
