RYAN’S RESERVE NETBALL COURTS SET FOR MAJOR UPGRADE
Member for Richmond Richard Wynne today announced $3 million funding to
upgrade four ageing courts and the old pavilion, giving budding players a
state-of-the-art facility that they can be proud of.
Ryan’s Reserve is the home of the Richmond Netball Association, but it’s
bursting at the seams and badly needs repairs.
The project will involve resurfacing the courts, as well as works to
improve lighting and pavilion upgrades.
The Association is home to more than 950 registered players, but their
courts are rundown and aren’t competition compliant. We’re fixing that.
The Labor Government’s investment follows Mr Wynne’s decision to reverse a
rezoning of Ryan’s Reserve back to Public Park and Recreation Zone,
ensuring commercial and residential development isn’t possible at the site.
The Government is delivering nine new netball courts across Richmond – four
at the new Richmond High School, three at Melbourne Girls College and two
at Richmond West Primary School.

“The community has spoken and we’ve listened. Locals want netball at Ryan’s
Reserve for many years to come. We’ve secured the site, and now we’re
“Netballers deserve state-of-the-art facilities to train and play. Our
investment will ensure they have a base they can be proud of, and nobody is
turned away from playing the game they love.”
