Upgrade our Coburg Basketball Stadium
This petition had 1,073 supporters
Our Coburg Basketball Stadium is desperately in need of major renovation and upgrade works, and needs the help and support of Moreland City Council.
Our proud stadium is 20 years old, and she is long overdue major renovations. Each week she hosts over 3000 men, women and children who play and train there - a role she has fulfilled well for 20 years. The demands on the stadium continue to grow, with Basketball being Australia's second largest team participation sport (http://websites.sportstg.com/get_file.cgi?id=2966498)
Sadly time is catching up with our stadium and the facilities are no longer capable of accommodating the ever-increasing demands of the local basketball fraternity. Games are now regularly held at school gymnasiums located around the municipality, adding extra time and cost for all participants involved. Representative basketball games and finals are being held at other venues by Basketball Victoria due to the age and quality of the facilities, compared to other municipalities.
Moreland City Council has a proud tradition of promoting an active lifestyle for its residents, and we welcome recent news about the multi-million dollar plan to build 16 new netball courts (http://www.moreland.vic.gov.au/about-us/news-and-publications/news/netball-booms-in-moreland/)
Now we require the Council's help to build at least one - if not two - new basketball courts as part of a major upgrade for the Coburg Basketball Stadium.
The continued popularity of the sport in the local area demonstrates a significant investment in basketball will provide a positive return for the community and we look forward to our Councillors and the management of the stadium working together to return our Coburg Basketball Stadium to her rightful position as the premier Basketball Stadium in the Northern Suburbs.
