WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Help us shape the Colin Maiden Park Precinct Masterplan for the good of basketball!
As you know we have a major capacity issues for basketball venues in Auckland. Key members of the basketball community have been working hard to discuss with Auckland Council ways in which it can help basketball overcome this shortage and secure additional courts to enable the sport to continue to grow. A recent report has confirmed that there is a serious shortage of basketball courts that are limiting the sports ability to hold competitions and events and to cater for significant growth in demand for basketball in Auckland.
As part of that process, Colin Maiden Park has been identified as one of the few remaining central locations in Auckland where a major indoor multi-sport facility could be located.
The Orakei Ward of Auckland Council has produced a Master Plan that sets out the potential design options for the development of Colin Maiden Park. The exciting news is that 2 of the 3 options make provision for a much needed large indoor multi-sport facility that could be used by basketball to overcome the serious court shortages that it is facing. CLICK HERE to view the Master Plan. These 2 scenarios have provision for 12 indoor courts!! which would enable the growth we desire for basketball at all levels.
