Netballers from across the region are set to enjoy the benefits of new Female Friendly Change Room facilities at the Rainbow Recreation Reserve, Rainbow. An Official Opening Event will take place at the new Change Rooms, adjacent to the netball courts, on Thursday 8 June 2023.
For many years local netballers and visiting teams have had to make do with tiny, outdated facilities, located hundreds of metres from the Netball Courts. Several years ago, Council began the process of developing the design for a new Change Room facility and subsequently, securing the funding to build it. The new Change Rooms represent a huge improvement in conditions for netballers, meeting the latest Netball Australia Facility Guidelines and are expected to be the envy of Clubs from across the Horsham & District Football Netball League. The Change Rooms will also benefit other Clubs and organisations utilising the Recreation Reserve being able to access the change rooms.
Extensive support was secured for the delivery of this project; with funding from Sport & Recreation Victoria’s Female Friendly Facilities program, the Federal Government’s Local Roads & Community Infrastructure program, Hindmarsh Shire Council, Rainbow Recreation Reserve Committee of Management, and the Jeparit Rainbow Football Netball Club.
The opening event is scheduled for 5:30pm on Thursday 8 June, which coincides with a Club training night in Rainbow. This gives supporters of the Jeparit Rainbow Football Netball Club and the wider community the opportunity to attend the opening and take a tour of the new Change Room facility while taking in the training action.
