Funding brightens future of Qbn basketball

NSW Premier Mike Baird and Member for Monaro John Barilaro announced the funding on Tuesday.

Queanbeyan and District Basketball Association president Jan Browne said the grant will repair the 30-year-old stadium further and plan an expansion.

“This could not have come at a better time, because fixing the roof left us broke,” she said.

“Now we can upgrade the toilets, replace the lights and plan for a further expansion.

“The new expansion will include a four full-sized courts, change rooms and a showcourt.”

The club saved for five years to replace the damaged roof, which Browne said exhausted all the club’s funds.

“We can use the money to pay back our committees- we borrowed from our uniform committee and other committees to pay for the roof.”

“At the moment we are asking players to pay a levy and now we can stop that.”

Queanbeyan City Council has allotted a section of land behind Allinsure Park, formerly Dairy Farmers Park, for the proposed $7 million facility, Browne said.

“We will work towards planning for the new facility, that way when there’s funding around we’ll be ready to go,” she said.

Browne said the club is turning a number of groups who are interested in hiring the facility “on a weekly basis” because the facility is already struggling to cope with the 1,300 registered junior and senior basketballers.

The new facility would not only benefit the Queanbeyan and District Basketball Association, but also the “whole of Queanbeyan”, Browne said.

“Once we get the new facility built we can either sell the current stadium or rent it out for netball, indoor soccer, volleyball; and use the money to fund other projects.”
