Growing netball participation in the Meander Valley region is now possible.
Two new netball courts have been completed at the Deloraine Community Complex.
The upgrade provides team sports the opportunity they need to grow, the Meander Valley Council said.
Mayor Wayne Johnston said sport was important for the community.
"Sport not only improves health, it also strengthens social connections and this project will allow more people to access courts more regularly," he said.
More than 200 club patrons will use the facilities.
"The new netball courts will play a large role in expanding operational capacity, catering for closer to 300 participants throughout the year," he said.
With the new plexi-pave playing surface, fencing, spectator seating and sports lighting, the courts will offer year-round, all-weather access.
The lighting design is set to ensure the light will be angled away from the neighbouring properties and onto the courts, minimising spill onto adjoining residential properties.
"Team sports particularly, provide a foundation for the development of resilience and collaboration. As a result of this project, netball and other sporting clubs including basketball and badminton have greater opportunity to use this valuable addition to the Complex," Cr Johnston said.
The Deloraine Devils helped drive the project. The team trained on the courts for the first time late last month.
"Much emotion, excitement and relief as this project has taken a very long time to achieve," the team said on its Facebook page.
The new courts were funded by Sport Australia, the state government, the Tasmanian Community Infrastructure fund, the Tasmanian Community Fund, the Deloraine and Districts community bank, Community Sport and Recreation, and the Meander Valley Council.
The courts cost more than $561,000, with construction starting late last year.
An official opening is set happen soon.
