Have say on basketball project

WORK on the proposed $20 million Auburn Basketball Training and High Performance Facility should begin next year.

Cumberland Council said it would provide a range of benefits for the community, including providing an accessible indoor sport facility “that supports talent identification and development pathways – from aspiring elite athletics to elite performance and mastery”.
Constructed within close proximity to the existing Auburn Basketball Centre in Wyatt Park and catering for a full spectrum of participation and athlete pathway development, it will be primarily used for training purposes by the Sydney Kings, Sydney Flames Basketball teams and the Hoops Capital Academy.
Boasting two training basketball courts, gym and recovery spaces, players lounge, film room for player development and education, retractable spectator seating, sports administration spaces with workstations and associated meeting rooms, associated player and spectator amenities, reception and kiosk for food and beverages and storage areas, it’s part of the $80 million, 10-year redevelopment plan of Wyatt Park.
The council report also stated that the centre would support the enhancement of inclusive elite sport infrastructure including dedicated female programs and facilities to improve pathways for women and girls, and provide a range of health and fitness opportunities that will support the current and future population growth and range of age groups within the community.
