Save Knox Basketball Stadium in Boronia Vic
Save Knox Basketball Stadium in Boronia in Victoria
The Knox Basketball Stadium in Boronia will be shut down and its funding redirected to extend the State Basketball Centre in Wantirna South.
While this sounds ok, Mayor Darren Pearce said it was unlikely there would be any changes to the State Basketball Centre within the next three to five years.
Knox Basketball Stadium in Boronia has been the much loved stadium since 1975. It was given to the council at that time by the land owners and was stipulated that it is to be used as a sports precinct.
So what will happen to accommodating 16 local basketball clubs and BIG V in this time?
Plus it's closer venue for our remote clubs located in our Dandenong Ranges region. It would be sad to see these remote clubs that are already struggling to retain healthy playing numbers collapse.
The Boronia stadium is home to games played by All Stars, Belgrave Red Devils, Boronia Buffaloes, Chandler Park Jets, Emerald Lakers, Ferntree Gully Falcons, Knox Cougars, KSC Phoenix, Mountain Tigers, Rangers, Saints, South East Eagles Southern Bears, Basin Wildcats, Wantirna Jetbacks, Wantirna Wasps as well as the Big V Championship series.
Let Knox council, KBI, and your local member know that we need to keep Knox Stadium at Boronia
