Popular Stories

WALLAN’S RB Robson Stadium will benefit from an $840,000 investment towards upgrades to amenities and the stadium’s courts to improve functionality and safety.

Jointly funded by $480,000 from the State Government and $360,000 from Mitchell Shire Council, the project will deliver two unisex change rooms, two umpire rooms and an umpire duty room, as well as the resurfacing and installation of adjustable backboards on court three.

RB Robson Stadium committee of management president Jodie Cloke said the upgraded stadium was an exciting project for the growing Wallan community.

“The stadium’s user groups and the committee of management are thrilled with the announcement and are excited for the much-needed improvement and development,” she said.

“We are excited for these works to commence and allow the growth to continue at the stadium and in Wallan.”

Wallan Basketball president Tracy Connors said the improvements would address important issues for the club.

“The additional changerooms will mean our female teams will now have a private space to prepare for games,” she said.

“The sanding of the courts will mean the deteriorating surface will be safer to play on and the installation of height adjustable backboards means we can provide more inclusive basketball to our youngest players.”

Minister for Community Sport Ros Spence last week attended the stadium to announce the funding for the upgrade, along with council representatives and key members from groups who use RB Robson Stadium.

Cr David Lowe said the upgrades would better cater to a wider range of stadium users.

“RB Robson Stadium is an important community asset that is heavily utilised by a wide range of user groups,” he said.

“We are very grateful for this support from the Victorian Government that will help us cater for current demand and prepare for the future.”
