Major milestones made at the Maranoa Netball Precinct

​Councillor Peter Flynn, Portfolio Chair for Sport and Recreation said it is great to see major progress being made on the precinct.

"To have this type of investment in sport is a fantastic achievement for the Maranoa," Cr Flynn said.

"A facility of this standard will encourage netball player numbers to grow, enticing more netball events to the region and increasing our kids participation in sport."

The remaining netball court slabs will continue to take shape over the coming weeks.

Other major works on site include the clubhouse construction, court surfacing and lighting.  Works on these parts of the project will commence in the New Year.

It is anticipated that the project will be complete in late February 2018 (weather permitting).

The Queensland Government provided $850,000 to Maranoa Regional Council for the Maranoa Netball Precinct Project to increase Queenslanders' participation in sport and recreation activities.

The Maranoa Netball Courts Lighting Project ($100,000 to light 4 additional courts) has been funded by the Queensland Government's $400 million Works for Queensland program.
