My constituency question is directed to the Minister for Sport, Mr Eren.
There has been an extensive and passionate campaign about Ryan's Reserve in the Assembly seat of Richmond involving netballers not only from Richmond but also from other neighbouring areas.
In fact there are dozens of girls from my electorate of Southern Metropolitan Region who cross the river and play at Ryans Reserve on a regular basis.
Many of their parents have contacted me via email and spoken to me about their concerns, and this has led to the backflipping of the Minister for Planning, Mr Wynne, on his decision to develop the site.
My question to the minister is:
Will he guarantee that he and his government will provide ongoing support to the local netball club to ensure that the facility is preserved and that the government will keep their word so that hundreds of netballers can continue to enjoy and play their sport?
