What better way to celebrate the opening of the Mundaring Arena than to host its first game of netball and basketball in the same week.
Local sporting groups say they are very keen to play in an indoor facility. Mundaring Arena will cater for a range of sports including hockey, badminton, volleyball and futsal. The state-of-the-art centre will mean players from the local community and further afield will be able to play their sport throughout the year, irrespective of weather conditions.
Shire of Mundaring worked closely with the local basketball, netball and indoor hockey associations along with the architects, consultants and the construction company Pindan to ensure the design was great value for money and fit for purpose. Practical completion took place last week.
The $10.1m facility is a fantastic community project which can be enjoyed by a range of user groups for many generations to come. Mundaring Community Bank Branch Bendigo Bank pledged $100,000 towards the project, with local basketball, hockey and netball clubs pledging between $10,000 and $30,000 each. The State Government provided $3million in funding, with the Shire funding the remainder.
