Marna Reserve, which is home to Dromana Netball Club and Dromana Football & Netball Club will have the existing courts renewed to comply with Netball Victoria standards.
The four outdoor courts will be renovated into two new netball courts with improvements to the lighting, fencing and surrounding landscaping and paving.
The renewal of the Marna Reserve netball courts will provide safe and compliant courts of a higher training standard for use by the Dromana Netball Clubs and the community.
Construction is due for completion in May 2021.
