Hills Basketball Association to manage Bernie Mullane Sporting Complex

Hills Basketball Association to manage Bernie Mullane Sporting Complex
February 26, 2021

The Hills Shire in north western Sydney has announced that from Monday 8th March 2021, the Hills Basketball Association will manage the Bernie Mullane Sports Complex, gymnasium and netball courts replacing current facility manager Belgravia Leisure.

From this time, the venue, located in Kellyville, will temporarily close for a period of approximately four to six weeks to allow for renovations.  

During the closure the Hills Basketball Association (HBA) will undertake works to refurbish the indoor courts, expand the gym and reconfigure the foyer. Works to upgrade the café and resurface the netball courts are also scheduled in the near future.

There will be a significant upgrade to the indoor courts to make the space suitable for wheelchair sports. It will include a new timber sports floor and top-quality glass backboards.  

Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne thanked Belgravia Leisure and their staff for their commitment to running the Centre at Bernie Mullane for the past six years.

Mayor Byrne noted “I would also like to congratulate the HBA in their successful bid to manage the complex over the next five years.  

“The HBA has a proven track record and excellent experience in managing similar sporting facilities here in The Hills, and I am confident that the complex will significantly add to the quality of our sporting facilities for use by residents.”
