Intro

The major upgrade to the facility will include the construction of four new indoor courts for the Geraldton Amateur Basketball Association (GABA) and forms part of the State Government's Plan for Geraldton.

In a key milestone for the project, local company Geraldton Building Services and Cabinets has now been appointed to carry out the works.

The project will be jointly funded by the State Government through the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries ($3.5 million), the GABA ($500,000) and the City of Geraldton ($550,000).

The GABA currently has over 2300 members and operates a high standard junior and senior competition as well as the Buccaneers State Basketball League team.

The Aussie Hoops, Midnight Basketball Program for Indigenous youth and the Wheelchair Competition also use the facility, providing benefits to the wider community.

The expansion of Geraldton Basketball Stadium will enable growth of the sport in the Greater Geraldton region, doubling the number of indoor courts to eight.
