THE Mansfield community is determined to finance a new multi-purpose two court stadium with the college and basketball association looking at options to help get the project off the ground.

Last week, Mansfield Secondary College (MSC) acting principal, Janessa Burkhardt, confirmed that stage two renovations at the school included money for a single indoor basketball court – but that the facility would not be suitable for competition.
