Club’s dream of court-ing success

Posted: 2pm 18 Sep 2020

A North Lakes netball dream is coming true with Moreton Bay Regional Council starting earthworks at Aurora Boulevard Park this week.

It is the beginning of construction of a carpark for North Lakes Blues Netball Club, which was formed a decade ago.

Once the carpark is complete it will pave the way for four new training courts, which will use the existing field lighting to train at night and a new clubhouse to call home.

Exciting times

“We’re excited to watch it take shape over the coming months and we’re so thankful for both Council and Federal Government for their contributions,” says North Lakes Blues’ President Samantha Malopito.

“We’ve had a great deal of support from the existing sports clubs who use the precinct, which has been pivotal to getting to this point.”

Mayor Peter Flannery says this is just the start of the larger project.

“These initial $375,000 works will pay for an increase in off-street carparking, lighting, pedestrian footpaths and landscaping,” he says.

Meeting demand

Federal MP for Petrie Luke Howarth adds the government’s $1 million will help fund the new clubhouse for North Lakes Blues.

All of which delights Councillor Jodie Shipway (Div 4): “Demand for netball is huge here so I’m thrilled the North Lakes Blues will finally have a local home,” she says.

“Council is investing $13.85 million into the nearby Griffin Sports Complex which will be the new home for Kangaroos Rugby League Club.”
