Improvements to 'freshen up' Ipswich stadium
AS players, coaches and officials enjoy the festive season, Ipswich Basketball is planning some important improvements to the stadium at Booval.
"It's looking tired so it needs some renovations,'' association president Julie George said.
"We're looking at putting in better ventilation, better lighting.
"We're doing the floors now . . . so (working on) all of those things that keep the stadium looking a bit fresh.''
George said $60,000 had been budgeted for the upgrade, with hopes of grant assistance to ensure Ipswich's premier basketball stadium continues to provide state level competition.
"We've had a good year in the QBL for Ipswich,'' she said.
"We have a lot of our own players and they've been supported by the other players we get in.
"We've got good coaches and a good commitment from the players.
"There's been good stability and growth in the game at Ipswich and our junior player numbers have grown.
"Things are looking pretty positive.''
