New Basketball Facility for Hervey Bay One Step Closer

Members of the Hervey Bay Basketball Association are hoping dreams for a dedicated basketball facility will be fulfilled next week when Fraser Coast Regional Council’s councillors vote on progressing the Hervey Bay Multipurpose Facility.

The proposal, if supported by council, would see a financial contribution for the construction of a multipurpose basketball facility at the Fraser Coast Sports and Recreation Precinct and provide new indoor and outdoor courts for the association’s 590 members and the wider community.

Hervey Bay Basketball Association President Matt Baker said the proposed facility had been in the pipeline for a number of years and consideration by council for funding would provide a significant boost for the sport in the region.

 

“A dedicated facility is needed now more than ever with the numbers of locals playing basketball significantly increasing in the last 12 months. We have outgrown our current premises at PCYC and now have enough demand for a dedicated venue to enable further expansion of the popular sport without turning away potential players.”

He said the proposed new development would include two indoor courts and one outdoor court with room for expansion in future years. The facility will be purpose built for all abilities and have the highest rating environmental considerations.

Mr Baker said the proposal aligns closely with council’s Sports Precinct Masterplan Strategy for creating active recreational spaces across the region and ensures local players will have access to high quality facilities.

 

“Having easily accessible sporting facilities supports a healthy and active community. Basketball is suitable for all ages with players aged from under 8 to seniors and is one of the most popular sports for men and women.

“A new facility would enable Maryborough and Hervey Bay to cohost professional tournaments, coaching clinics and training programs that will also add significant economic benefits to the region.”

 

Mr Baker said the growth of the sport locally meant that games would still be held at the current site at the PCYC in O’Rourke Street for the foreseeable future.

 

“Support from council at next week’s meeting (28th September) would add a valuable asset to the community and provide significant value to the health, wellbeing and lifestyle of local residents for generations to come,” Mr Baker said.

Get Involved with Your Club

Hervey Bay Basketball is run by volunteers, for the enjoyment and development of the game of Basketball.

 

Get involved, no experience is necessary. Most of us knew nothing about the game when our children started playing.​

 

Only by getting involved, helping on the score bench, washing singlets, helping on the front desk, helping experienced Coaches, were we able to learn.
