By news@gippsland - 8th July 2022 - Back to News

This project represents Bass Coast Shire Council's ongoing investment in sport and recreation facilities in Inverloch and will create a multi-use cricket practice facility. Multi-use training facilities incorporating cricket practice nets are fast growing in popularity due to their flexible nature and capacity to accommodate a range of activities. They provide an essential facility for cricket practice but also seamlessly accommodate other training outside of cricket, such as kick-about space for soccer practice.

Inverloch, Thompson Reserve - Cricket Practice Enclosure starts on 04 July 2022 and is anticipated to be completed by mid-September 2022

Project timeline and upgrades

This exciting project will start in early July and is expected to be completed by mid-September, subject to contractor and supplier availability, weather and any COVID-19 impacts. This $400,000 project is being funded with $250,000 from council, $100,000 from Sport and Recreation Victoria's Community Cricket Program and $25,000 each from the Inverloch Cricket Club, and the Inverloch Stars Soccer Club.
