The Casey Regional Basketball and Netball facility Sports Flooring Construction has now commenced.
“Nellakir – Master Craftsmen – For Expert Construction and Programmed Maintenance of All Sports Flooring”
At the highest level of competition there is only one acceptable surface for a Basketball, Netball or Volleyball Court – Sprung Timber Flooring.
And now Victoria (and Tasmania’s) leading supplier of competition timber sports flooring, Nellakir, is about to commence its newest project – the Casey Regional Basketball and Netball facility in Cranbourne East. This is a combined funding effort by the Victorian State Government, the City of Casey and the Casey Basketball Association.
The overall project builders, Devco, have contracted Nellakir, the leading sports flooring construction company in Victoria, to complete 5 new courts. Each court is competition regulation compliant using Victorian Ash as its sprung timber flooring. Nellakir are recognised as Victoria and Tasmania’s leading suppliers and master craftsmen in the construction of sprung timber sports flooring
With these 5 new courts, this provides 10 courts in total at the facility. The South East corridor is Victoria’s fastest growing suburban corridor with many young families and students living, working and studying there. Sport provides a unique and rewarding pathway to adulthood for many young people. Basketball is appealing across the many ethnicities and cultural groupings that make up the population of Casey.
These courts will be FIBA (International Basketball Federation) certified. The new facility will feature a Premier Show Court with seating for 1500 people. The targeted completion date will be during February 2017.
With more space, the Casey Basketball Association can plan for greater competitions and higher participation over coming years.
Casey Council estimates over 750,000 visitors will use the new facility every year. The association has scheduled the first competition tournament to be held on the new courts at the facility over the Labour Day Weekend of 2017.
With Junior and Domestic competitions all the way through to the Casey Cavaliers Big V teams, competitors from across the entire South East region of Melbourne are excitedly anticipating the completion and opening of the $18 million complex in early 2017.
