There’s been a lot happening within the Club over the last 6months and It’s with thanks to our Volunteers, Staff, Members and Sponsors, that we are able to make positive changes around the Stadium, to benefit everybody.
Comments recently made on Facebook regarding the quality of the floors have been relayed to the manufacturer, who will no doubt be in touch with those who have raised their concerns.
The new floors which are now in place on courts 4-7, are of high quality and have made a positive change to our stadium, allowing the Domestic Basketball Competition to play all games on wooden floors.
All seven courts are now at a standard in which they can be used for WABL training.
Recently, in the first Winter storm, there was water ingression on courts 5,6 & 7, which prevented Domestic games from being held on those courts.
The City of Rockingham , NOT RBRA, is responsible for the roof maintenance of the Mike Barnet Sportsplex. The City has attended promptly and have repaired the major leak on court 6 and are working to prevent any future leaks.
The Scoreboards on Courts 1,2 & 3 and the main scoreboard are being replaced by the City of Rockingham along with the scoreboard on court 7, which was damaged by water ingression – This is planned to be completed by 25th June 2018.
The new rings and glass backboards will be installed over the Christmas break, to reduce any inconvenience to the competitions.
Bizvault has joined the Rockingham Flames this season as our I.T sponsor. The club has now upgraded it’s computers and BizVault have been of key assistance in this area. Over the next few weeks, the club will install it’s own WIFI and our new website will go live - with thanks to Professional Web Solutions - Mandurah, our Gold Level sponsor. The Rotary Club of Rockingham (Western Australia) have also assisted with the provision of a new computer for our Administrator.
It has been great to see the number of Flames Polos, Hoodies and other merchandise around the club. Jodie Heath has done a great job organising the Flames Merchandise store.
