Expansion: Board announcement

Announcement: Willetton Basketball Stadium Expansion Project to Proceed.

After careful consideration, the Willetton Basketball Association Board this week decided to make the stadium expansion project a reality.

The Board was disappointed with the shortfall in the WA Government’s contribution to our project however we are determined to make this project happen.

 The feedback from our community over recent days has convinced us that the shortfall in state funding can be overcome through more hard work by our basketball community and our large band of volunteers. This encouragement is welcome as we know how hard it is to raise funds while always working to minimise the impact on participation costs for our players.

This project would not be possible without the following grants and we are very grateful that these organisations have made our dream a reality:


Federal Government      $5.5Million

City of Canning              $2.2Million

WA Government              $1.5 Million

The above grants would not have been possible without the fantastic fundraising efforts of our association over the last decade. We have more to do, we are developing our plans, and we will do it.  Strategies to bridge the gap may include any or all the following – events, levies, donations, loans (if viable to consider).

We are excited about the project and what it will mean for our club and the broader basketball community.
