Charles Mutton netball courtsProject background

The Victorian Government’s new $9.6 million Inner City Netball Program is building 64 competition compliant netball courts in inner-Melbourne, ensuring nobody is turned away from playing the game they love.

Merri-bek is benefiting from the program, which will cater for the growing demand for netball by building multi court facilities where they are needed most.

Charles Mutton Reserve is a popular park with sportsfields for AFL and both synthetic and turf cricket. The basic playground has picnic tables and is well connected to surrounding streets. A state of the art raingarden provides stormwater irrigation to the sports grounds.
