Volleyball WA would like to thank the City of Stirling for their support of the sport and providing a new place for people to play the game. The additional four courts will provide a place for beach volleyballers to train, beachgoers to have a spontaneous game and provide a place for social volleyballers to play.
This is a wonderful example of how public spaces like parks, reserves and beaches can provide opportunities for active recreation in our community. There was no cost to the local council and only physical, mental, and economic benefits for their communities.
This project has been well supported by Coastal Ward Councillor Karen Caddy, who has been lobbying hard for the court installation at the very popular beach for some time and will be a legacy of her time on council and her contribution to the community.
“The digging of the very first hole and installation of these court poles by the City of Stirling Mayor Mark Irwin is a significant step in building the state-wide portfolio of public places for people to play and the promotion of the sport of Volleyball,” said CEO Volleyball WA, Robyn Kuhl.
Mayor Mark Irwin said the City was pleased to approve the court location and excited to see a new sporting amenity added to Scarborough Beach.
“Scarborough Beach has already had significant public amenity investment with the $100 million redevelopment in recent years,” he said.
“This grass-roots level infrastructure will be another drawcard to ensure there is a broad range of recreation options to suit all visitors on our iconic Scarborough Beach, which has long been seen as a desirable location for volleyball.”
The beach volleyball season kicks off at Scarborough Beach on October 2, where our tour players will be playing in a showcase event as part of the Groundswell event.
The Alcohol. Think Again Beach Tour officially kicks off on November 27 & 28. For more details on this plus where to play in WA visit www.volleyballwa.com.au or contact the office on 9228 8522.
