Balmoral court openedPosted Wednesday 14 October 2020
Mosman’s sporting facilities have been boosted with the official opening of a new multipurpose hardcourt at Balmoral Oval, suitable for basketball and netball.
As well as the full-sized multipurpose court the project includes a practice court, upgrades of surrounding landscaping and footpaths, provision for future light poles for evening use during winter and a ball-proof perimeter fence along the creek side.
The court project received majority support from residents following engagement with the community on options, which also included turning the land next to Balmoral Oval into a grassed or natural area, a barbecue area with shelters or a community garden.
The courts will help meet the growing demand for sporting facilities, especially basketball, which was identified in Council’s Recreational Needs Assessment Report as requiring additional facilities.
