SJ Community Recreation Centre upgrades make for happy hoopers

Upgrades to the Serpentine Jarrahdale Community Recreation Centre have proved to be a slam dunk, with new retractable backboards and hoops servicing both junior and senior basketball in the area.

Funded as part of a $106,500 State Government election commitment and delivered by the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale, the new systems adjust accordingly to suit whichever age group takes to the court and are a significant boost for the hundreds of young basketballers in the region.

Further works carried out as part of the State Government funding agreement included the installation of LED lights throughout the facility and roof repairs.

These latest upgrades follow significant improvements to the Centre’s car park, which were completed late last year and funded by the Australian Government’s Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program.

Located in the heart of Byford, the Serpentine Jarrahdale Community Recreation Centre is the Shire’s largest community hub, with thousands of people attending the facility for fitness and wellbeing activities each week.

Upgrading the facility aligns with the Shire’s vision to create an active and healthy community.
