Basketballers at Singleton PCYC are excited to see their hoops scores in bright lights on the new electronic scoreboard thanks to a $1,500 donation from Yancoal Australia’s Mount Thorley Warkworth (MTW) operation.
The basketball program has significantly grown in popularity with the juniors. The installation of a new electronic scoreboard will enable the PCYC to host competitions and bring more excitement to the games, allowing the spectators to view the score in real-time.
David Andrews, Club Manager for Singleton PCYC was thrilled with the new scoring system.
“We have around 900 members at Singleton PCYC and our Aussie Hoops program is becoming more and more popular with the 650 junior members at the centre.
“Basketball is a great sport that keeps you fit and active. Depending on how members like to exercise, they can come and shoot some hoops solo or with a couple of mates or get involved in the teams and competitions that the PCYC hosts.
“The new scoreboard is a sturdy, high quality, time measuring and scoring device and we expect it will help drive interest in our basketball program. We are thankful to MTW for their donation,” said David.
The PCYC is a charity empowering young people to reach their potential through Police and community partnerships. With 55 years of service to young people of the Singleton district, PCYC Singleton provides quality activities in a safe, fun, friendly environment.
Mount Thorley Warkworth General Manager David Bennett welcomed the opportunity to boost the facilities at Singleton PCYC.
“The PCYC provide an invaluable service to the local youth and wider Singleton community, always offering programs that aim to build on young people’s skills and help shape them as leaders of the future.
“Now more than ever, we need to come together as a community and we are pleased we can help support Singleton PCYC enhance their centre,” said David.
