Netballers at the Campbells Creek Football Netball Club can now take their game to the next level thanks to an upgraded netball court and lighting at Campbells Creek Recreation Reserve. 

Member for Bendigo West Maree Edwards joined representatives from the Creekers to officially launch the new court and sports lighting made possible by a $250,000 investment from the Allan Labor Government.

Up until recently, members of the Creekers netball teams were limited in their ability to train and compete due to an ageing cracked court surface.

The old asphalt has been replaced with a Netball Victoria competition standard acrylic court surface along with a new court fence, 200 lux LED sports lighting, and a players’ shelter.

It’s now the perfect place for the Creekers to build on numbers and host more competitions while being a space for nearby Campbells Creek Primary School and community to host local events.

“I’m delighted that the Victorian Government has supported this project in Campbells Creek to ensure that netballers from across our region have the infrastructure they deserve to help them thrive," Ms Edwards said.

“This project will also help Campbells Creek cater for the growing numbers of people keen to get involved in grassroots sport.

“Campbells Creek Football Netball Club are brilliant advocates for their players and their facilities – and it’s wonderful that we’ve been able to deliver this project to support their future.”

The Victorian Government funding for the project is from the Country Football and Netball Program.

Developed in partnership with the AFL, AFL Victoria and Netball Victoria, the Program has invested more than $21.3 million in 180 country football and netball infrastructure projects over the past decade.

It’s part of the Victorian Government’s investment into community sport and active recreation infrastructure that’s kicked in more than $1.9 billion over the past decade.

Maree Edwards MP acknowledged the Mount Alexander Shire Council for its more than $30,000, and the Federal Government for its close to $400,000 contribution to the project.
