Minsiter Marais to present netball facility funding to West Coast municipalities

25 May 2021
As we continue to gear up to host the 2023 Netball World Cup in the Western Cape, Minister Anroux Marais will officially present ceremonial cheques to municipalities in the West Coast District to upgrade netball facilities in their respective regions. 
 
Through the multiple engagements with the Western Cape Netball Federation to discuss the state and usage of netball facilities within the Western Cape, the following municipalities in the West Coast were considered for upgrading to contribute to the Netball World Cup 2023 Legacy project and these cheque handovers signify the funding allocated for the 2020/21 financial year: 
 
  • The Swartland Municipality will receive R600 000 to upgrade the Chatsworth Sports Ground and approximately R382 700 for fencing the already upgraded courts in Darling and Kalbaskraal
  • The Bergrivier Municipality is allocated R300 000 for upgrading the existing netball courts in Rhino Park in Piketberg
  • The Matzikama Municipality will receive R800 000 to upgrade the netball courts at the Doringbaai Sports Field.
The Mayors of each respective municipality will receive the cheques from Minister Marais at the presentation on Tuesday.
