Following an extensive consultation period involving a broad cross section of stakeholders, Netball WA is pleased to announce the release of the Netball WA Strategic Facilities Plan which compliments the recent roll out of the Netball Australia National Facilities Policy Version 2 – March 2016, which was recently updated.

The Netball WA Strategic Facilities Plan has been developed in conjunction with Basketball WA and delivers on one of netball’s key strategic objectives and will be a significant resource to assist our membership, the wider netball community, local government and commercial centres in the development of facilities for the sports current and future needs.

The Strategic Facilities Plan outlines the likely population growth patterns within our state over the coming years and identifies the future requirements for further facilities to accommodate this growth. The document also contains the framework to indicate how Netball WA is able to provide support and guidance to its key stakeholders as well as information on the following:

  • A three level hierarchy of facilities – State, Regional and District.
  • Further detail on recommendations for facilities in each region as per the Department of Sport and Recreation Regional Boundaries, accompanied with priority levels and timeframes.

The Netball WA Strategic Facilities Plan has been funded by the Department of Sport and Recreation and endorsed by the Netball WA Board. The Plan is a comprehensive resource for Regions, Associations, Local Government, other government departments and developers.

The Netball Australia National Facilities Policy provides stakeholders and member organisations with a framework that can assist in the planning and development of community netball facilities. This Policy was developed in consultation with key stakeholders including Member Organisations along with Associations, Leagues and Clubs as well as local and State Governments.

The key objectives of the Policy are to:

  • Support participation growth and sustainability;
  • Provide key stakeholders with guidance in facility planning and development;
  • Provide a technical manual that can be applied nationally;
  • Improve the overall consistency, quality and accessibility of netball facilities.
