Member for Pittwater Rob Stokes today announced NSW Government funding for the installation of permanent netball courts in Avalon Beach.

The NSW Government will contribute $300,000 towards Northern Beaches Council's construction of new courts to cater for the increasingly popular sport.

Newport Breakers Netball Club and Peninsula Netball Club together have over 1,000 registered players, made up of over 55 junior and senior teams.

"Permanent netball courts in Avalon Beach will enable additional training and playing facilities for the entire Northern Beaches netball community," Rob Stokes said today.

“With netball becoming increasingly popular - this is a great financial boost that will support even more local players to get involved.

"Local netball clubs have worked together brilliantly to make this happen - I'd like to thank Cara McCauley from Newport Breakers Netball, Simone Dickinson from Peninsula Netball, and Pittwater ward Councillor Alex McTaggart for their advocacy on behalf of our netball community.

“I look forward to seeing this project get underway and the benefits it will provide,” Rob Stokes said.
