Teenage girls playing netball

The new multipurpose courts at Christison Park are now open to the public – thank you for your feedback on this community-enhancing project.

Christison Park has some shiny new hoops -- including Woollahra's very first community netball courts.

Two multi-purpose courts have replaced the existing basketball-only court in the north east corner of the park, meaning not only can everyone have a go at dribbling, free styling and slam-dunking, but also Goal Attack, Centre Pass, and Shooting.

The new courts cater for both basketball and netball, and have sports lighting to allow for extended play in winter. Casual play is still permitted, but now there is also the opportunity for schools and sports groups to book the courts for practice and training.

Details of the plans and a range of images can be found through the links on the right of the page.

A report on the community consultation undertaken for this project went to Council's Finance, Community and Services meeting on Monday 19 August 2019. From that report, a Review of Environmental Factors (REF) for the project was conducted and approved, with construction taking place between April and August 2020.

The courts are now available for use by the general public and bookings are available Monday to Sunday between 7am – 9pm. Bookings can also be made via our Recreation team on 9391 7000.

Great idea and good use of space.

Well done council, I think this is a great idea, Except i think you should leave the current basketball courts as they are heavily used and build two entirely new multi purpose courts adjacent to the existing basketball court or further along towards the road.

This is a much needed development for our area. Not having had any facilities for children to play netball in the area has meant commuting to Waverley and Maroubra for training. To be able to train and play close to our homes and schools is of huge benefit. Thank you for finally taking the step to provide much needed local sports facilities for the kids of Woollahra.

Yes! This is amazing and I fully support it. Please also consider building some toilet facilities for those using the courts

Yes !! These courts are so needed as there is such limited spaces for netball in comparison to the numbers involved in the sport which is raising all the time. Many of the local schools also don't have enough court space for their own teams. I use the court a lot with daughter. My one suggestion is to keep the court as far away as possible from any downward slopes around it. Once balls go down the slopes it takes a long time to retrieve waisting a lot of time. Also have at least one court open to community all the time. The councils tend to book our courts to community users again making such spaces available for the local community to go and use. Keep one free for spontaneous use!

It is so important that children get the opportunity to engage in physical activity. With the growth of netball in Australia, it is fantastic that the Council is recognising and hopefully acting on the need to help support the health of children especially in a sport eg Netball that is growing in interest and participation. Local schools need this facility.

Fantastic, so desperately needed!

jenny over 2 years ago

This is so needed as often our girls want to practice netball before or after school and there is currently nowhere in the area for them. we want to encourage active kids!!

kateisbell over 2 years ago

Fantastic, especially for girls and women’s sport. Hopefully this is the start of many new netball courts in the area.

Diana over 2 years ago

This is an amazing idea which will give the local children somewhere to play in a safe environment. The courts on Birrell St are great but they are just too far away. Fabulous Initiative

Jacquee@bondiphoenix over 2 years ago

Fantastic - more courts are definitely much needed. So much demand for netball!

Jo Pinnegar over 2 years ago

I would love to see new hoops here!

Roisin over 2 years ago

Finally Woollahra council is paying attention to female sport! One netball court is a great start but let’s get more happening for the thousands of girls who play netball every week.

Shelley over 2 years ago

Great news, the more places we and our kids can get active the better.

Alik over 2 years ago

Can’t wait for these courts. We have been using the current basketball courts as a family but with two girls who play netball it would be great for these to be multi purpose courts.
