Rep team players at the Collingwood Magpies netball team launch
CALL TO ACTION
As you are aware there are moves afoot by the Government to close down the Ryan’s Reserve netball
courts and to relocate the Richmond Netball Association and all of its teams to the new Richmond High School in Gleadell Street. After meeting with government officials and having it confirmed
that NO PARKING will be available on site we have decided that this is not a suitable venue for Richmond Netball. We are now seeking your support to have Ryan’s Reserve retained as netball
courts rather than re-zoned for housing.
1. Please sign this petition to oppose the rezoning of Ryan's Reserve netball courts into a commercial zone for shops
2. Lodge your objection against the rezoning to the Government by completing a submission on the following link before
September 23: http://www.dtpli.vic.gov.au/planning/about-planning/planning-services-directory/fast-track-government-land-service
A couple of happy Saturday morning umpires at Richmond.
History of the Richmond Netball Association (RNA) .....
RNA was established over 25 years ago in an effort to provide structured netball competitions to local community members and school groups.
We commenced junior competitions on an ashphalt netball court at one of the local schools with approx. 15 children and as interest grew, we lobbied the local council for a more suitable netball
venue within the City of Yarra. After years of lobbying, the Ryan’s Reserve complex was built and has been our home ever since.
The venue is easily accesible by train and tram. The closest train station is Burnley whilst the tram route number is 70 (stop no. 15).
