Our major renovations are now complete, and competitions are all back to normal. It’s been an incredible journey, but we are finally starting to see the benefits from all the hard work. The place looks great and our new nets make for a better, faster game. As a whole, we feel we have accomplished our goal of creating a fun, friendly place, that is family friendly, while providing excellent volleyball facilities.
Separate to our courts we now have a basketball area, kids’ playground, table tennis tables and plan to add a pool table. The aim was to make our centre not only about volleyball but also an enjoyable place to hang out. It appears we have nailed this as lots of people are staying after their games and Friday night social night has exploded with most Friday’s now needing all 8 courts.
With everything coming together we will now be focusing on some new competitions. We will soon be introducing a junior’s volleyball league to compliment the free junior coaching that we already have on Friday’s and will be starting a lady’s competition during the day for Mum’s and other ladies who are available during the day.
But we’re not done yet! Soon we will be repainting the sign out the front of the building. Cameron Gordon, who did the amazing artwork inside our centre will be showcasing his talents once again by designing and painting the front of the building. Also, we’ll be replacing the wooden bollards at the front door shortly with steel, bright orange ones that will hopefully be obvious enough, so delivery trucks won’t hit them during the day.
To spread the word about how good our centre has become we have now started a rather large advertising campaign. You’ll see us on a number of IGA notice boards, Facebook and Instagram but the most exciting is our ad before every movie at Millennium Cinemas in Fremantle. While it’s only a 15 second advert, it has been an exciting process getting professional videographers in, design teams to make the ad and now having it screened, be sure to let us know what you think if you see it.
All in all, it’s really exciting times here at Fremantle Indoor Beach Volleyball, thank you to everyone for their patience through the whole process, I think most would agree that it’s been worth it!
