Cootamundra's netball fraternity will soon be enjoying new courts thanks to the NSW State Government Stronger Country Communities Fund, Round Two grant.
Work commenced last week, with Cootamundra-Gundagai Regional Council employees and contractors demolishing the old courts to make way for two new courts.
State Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke, said the project will inject new life into netball in Cootamundra.
"Sport plays such a big role in bringing communities together, and it's fantastic that these courts will be receiving a much-needed upgrade," Ms Cooke said.
"The old courts were completely inadequate with cracks and an uneven surface.
"I'm pleased this project will result in safe and usable courts for the Cootamundra community," Ms Cooke said.
Cootamundra/Gundagai Regional Council mayor Cr Abb McAlister agreed with Ms Cooke's statement adding that the new area will also have some extras.
"We will see new lights installed, a new clubroom/timekeepers and storage area erected, the courts will be marked up for basketball and netball, with reversible posts catering to both sports," he said.

"There will be a safe run off area and the court surface will be an artificial, durable and long lasting surface."
The project is expected to be completed in February.
