Rouse Hill Rams Cricket Club is confident the new $70,000 synthetic practice facility at Russell reserve will promote the game further in the Hills.
The new nets have been installed thanks to a combined effort from The Hills Shire Council, Castle Hill state Liberal MP Ray Williams and the Rouse Hill Rams.
Rouse Hill Rams president Jeremy Jones said the new facilities will be a boost for players.
“Our club also has access to synthetic nets at Kellyville Park and Hills Centenary Park” Mr jones said.
“However this is the first set of nets that we have been involved in building.”
Cricket NSW manager, state infrastructure and government relations officer Anthony Brooks said the new nets will help foster the love of cricket and increase participation in the area.
