At Nellakir we believe in fostering the sport of Netball as a healthy, regular team sport. The Victorian State Government PPP program is now ensuring that kids have a genuine opportunity to play and participate in most parts of Melbourne and rural Victoria. The PPP (Public Private Partnership) program is ensuring that Netball Courts are incorporated in the majority of new schools built and also with school upgrades.

Netball is a skilful game. It requires quick thinking and action with good hand to eye coordination. It is fast becoming a recognised international sport.

It is more than interesting seeing the sport regain a foothold in the USA. This is where it started many years ago, as a genteel version of Basketball for ‘proper young ladies’. However since those days the game has evolved dramatically and it is now a fast paced, incredibly skilful game with major differences to Basketball. This includes court position, no dribbling the ball, no contact and the three second rule that requires ball disposal within a three second period. It’s a wonderful team sport that encourages the development of physical, mental and social skill sets.

Nellakir – The Sports Flooring for Champions

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.
