Users of the Mike Barnett Sports Complex in Rockingham are set to benefit from a range of upgrades to the facility, after the City of Rockingham completed refurbishments to the facility’s outdoor courts. With support from the State Government, upgrades included the resurfacing of five northern netball courts, installation of floodlighting for training and competition level matches, three new weather shelters, a pedestrian path, an accessible ramp, fencing and gates. An independent report was conducted to consider the Rockingham Districts Netball Association’s requests to also resurface the southern five courts. Following the report the City agreed to resurface these courts, ensuring high-quality playing surfaces for all users. Upgrades have now started to the additional four eastern courts at the complex. Mayor Deb Hamblin said the City was focused on planning for future generations and sporting facilities that meet community needs was integral to this. “With the development of the Mike Barnett Sports Complex Master Plan already underway, these latest works on the northern outdoor courts demonstrate the City’s commitment to providing quality sporting infrastructure for community members,” Ms Hamblin said. Member for Rockingham and Premier Mark McGowan said his government was proud to partner with the City on the project.
