Netballers thrilled with ‘new’ old courts
Jervois netballers are jumping for joy – and doing so safely – following major improvements to their courts complex.
The courts in the Lower Murray township, just about opposite Tailem Bend, have undergone a $54,000 upgrade to ensure they’re in absolutely tip-top shape:
The Office for Recreation and Sport was a big contributor, handing over a $25,000 grant under Round 41 of the Active Club Program.
Recently the home-team Jervois Bluds Netball Club hosted the local association netball grand final, giving it a perfect opportunity to show off the improvements.
The verdict (from locals and visitors alike)? They’re a winner!
The courts are also getting a solid workout from Jervois’ tennis players, who agree the new surfaces are much safer for players, and the new set-up safer and more comfortable for spectators too.
(The Bluds are hoping the redevelopment will help their bank balance as well, by bringing in more players and members!)
