Shoalhaven Council has agreed to part fund the construction of a batting cage at our home ground at Ison Park South Nowra. Council is providing $35,000. The Mariners need to contribute $18,000. At the moment we are a little short. We don't want to miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, hence we are seeking your help to raise $3000 to get this project "on first base". A batting cage will enable junior and senior players to receive batting tuition and practice in a safe environment (and after dark as well). Of course it will also be available to visiting teams to practice hitting before and during tournament games. So, can you help us out with a small (or large) contribution?
