MARC – Multi-purpose Indoor Stadium
The MARC will include four sports courts, multipurpose meeting rooms, an administration office, toilets and change facilities (including accessible change), a cafeteria, car park and road entry, accessible shared pathways and landscaping.
The new stadium will facilitate a variety of sports, including basketball, netball, volleyball and futsal (indoor soccer).
“The BMBA Community is extremely excited about the opportunities that new state of the art facilities will bring for Basketball in our region, including the capacity to simply ensure more players can play in our many competitions, whilst also meeting the growing community needs that come with the general population growth expectations within the Moorabool Community. “As an Association, we have grown well beyond the capacity available with the existing basketball facilities available to the BMBA, so we are excited that the new (4) court facility will enable increased volumes for training, playing and also representative basketball, whilst ensuring the very best in game day conditions for all senior and junior players, coaches and spectators alike. “The BMBA Committee is heavily focused at present on increasing female participation, whilst also increasing overall accessible and inclusive basketball programs within the Bacchus Marsh region for everyone and we know that with this pending increase in court availability our Association members, our local Clubs and everybody else involved in Basketball, will see the growth in the numbers playing basketball which will in turn support the entire Bacchus Marsh community in general. “Finally, and on behalf of all our members, we now look forward to the first dig at the site, to formally get it all happening”
Wayne Slack, Bacchus Marsh Basketball Association (BMBA) President
