The original Canberra Netball Association (CNA) pavilion was constructed in the 1970s and was in desperate need of redevelopment. As most will agree, the old pavilion did not cater for the 5,000 players, spectators, umpires and officials that walk through our gates each week. With only two toilets and no change rooms – they were the real heroes!
CNA was fortunate to receive a Commonwealth Government grant to build your new Clubhouse, with more space, safer facilities, better amenities and a place we can call home and share with our netball community. However, the grant did not cover the cost of the entire build, which has increased due to the escalating costs of the build caused by an increase in demand for building supplies during COVID, the need to undertake a complete knockdown-rebuild, and a design that ensures your new Clubhouse is not outgrown in the next 50 years.
Luckily the CNA community stepped up and helped fundraise through generous donations that allowed us to complete our brand new clubhouse! Our new Clubhouse is finally complete and we are so excited for the community to use the space. The date of the Grand Opening will be confirmed soon!
