Jackie O’Meara Courts

These nine courts were named in 2013 in honour of Jackie O’Meara, DPNA Grounds Convenor from 1998 to 2012 – 15 years. 

Jackie played a major part in ensuring that our complex was of a high standard for playing netball. Her contribution was well reflected in the many complements paid to Jackie after her death. All captured Jackie as someone who was always there when she was needed, who was unwaveringly loyal, who could be very stubborn and determined once she had made up her mind, someone with an infectious laugh and someone who always built positive relationship with others. 

Signs were placed on the light towers in September 2017.

Pam Greer Grandstand (near Court 8)

Valleys Netball Club organised this grandstand in honour of Pam Greer, who passed away in 2016 after a long battle with illness. It was erected in 2017. Pam had extensive involvement with netball through a number of netball associations. Her DPNA life membership was awarded in recognition of over ten years of service from 2002 when she became Fixtures Convenor and then Treasurer in 2006.  She also assisted as equipment officer and managed DPNA representative teams for a number of years. She resigned from the DPNA committee at the end of 2012 because of her health. However, she continued her extensive involvement with the Valleys Netball Club until the time of her death. 

Diana Moore Clubhouse & Diana Moore Representative Player Scholarship

The DPNA Clubhouse was named in honour of Diana Moore who served as President of DPNA from 2009 until 2017. Prior to this, Diana served as DPNA Senior Vice President (1992-2008) and DPNA Promotions Officer (1987-1991) as well as 26 years as President of Canons Rebels Netball Club. Diana was instrumental in a number of major projects such as hard-court developments and lighting upgrades which would not have happened without Diana playing a vital role in securing funding, planning and overseeing each one. The New DPNA clubhouse, completed in 2016, was made possible through Diana’s tireless involvement and commitment to securing more than $750,000 in funding from the Queensland Government and Brisbane City Council.

From 2019, Diana Moore has also generously offered to fund the annual Diana Moore Representative Player Scholarship for players of school age who have been successfully chosen as a DPNA Representative Player and seek financial assistance for Representative related expenses.
