Facilities Resources

Netball Victoria is proud to provide our netball associations, leagues and clubs, schools, facility investors and all levels of government a suite of resources to help inform and to better plan for the growth and development of our sport.

We look forward to continuing our partnerships with all these stakeholders, so that together we can continue to deliver high quality netball venues and facilities for our valued – and ever growing – netball community.

Netball has been working with all levels of government and community stakeholders to ensure new netball developments meet current compliance and standards.  We advocate for safe and compliant venues for our members and the local communities in which they serve.  It is Netball Victoria’s expectation that all new and redeveloped netball facilities be constructed to meet the national netball standards outlined in the Netball Victoria Facilities Manual and the National Facilities Policy and Technical Manual.

The Netball Australia Technical Manual has been prepared by Netball Australia to help Clubs, Associations, local government, the education sector, contractors and others in the netball community to understand better the technical aspects of netball court design, construction & maintenance requirements.

Netball Victoria (NV) has developed this fact sheet to provide Clubs, Associations, Leagues, Councils & Contractors with the most up to date standards required by NV when redeveloping or constructing new netball court facilities.  This is a summarised fact sheet and used to outline basic court standards.  This fact sheet should be used in conjunction with the NA Policy Manual during planning and design.

The Netball Victoria Facilities Manual presents a facility hierarchy for venues used for netball competition, training and other programs. The Manual nominates a four-tiered hierarchy; local, sub-regional, regional and elite, and describes the component facilities that should be considered for provision at each level of the hierarchy.

Netball facilities should be welcoming to the entire community regardless of age, gender, ability or mobility.
Netball facility design needs to ensure netball courts, supporting infrastructure and amenities are accessible and inclusive to all. Netball Victoria (NV) has developed this fact sheet to provide Clubs, Associations, Leagues, Councils and Contractors with guidance when redeveloping or constructing new netball court facilities.

The Statewide Facilities Strategy provides information which will assist netball associations, leagues, clubs, schools, facility investors and all levels of government to better plan for the growth and development of our sport.
We look forward to continuing our partnerships with all of these stakeholders, so that together we can continue to deliver high quality netball venues and facilities for our valued – and ever growing – netball community.
The Statewide Facilities Strategy should be read and considered in conjunction with the Netball Victoria Facilities Manual.
