Local 3×3 basketballers Choose Tap
As part of their commitment to the health and hydration of the local community, Central Highlands Water (CHW), in partnership with the City of Ballarat and Basketball Ballarat, have added a hands-free sensor drinking water fountain to Selkirk Stadium’s new 3×3 outdoor basketball courts.
The Ballarat Miners are long-term Choose Tap ambassadors and local basketballers, at all levels, have been vocal about the importance of easy access to water, when practicing or playing.
CHW Managing Director, Paul O’Donohue highlighted the many benefits of locating the new fountain alongside the 3×3 outdoor basketball courts.
“This new fountain provides a great opportunity to remind everyone, especially the younger generation, of the importance of keeping healthy, staying hydrated and reducing single-use plastic waste.
“The hands-free sensor technology used on the fountain also reduces touch-points for increased hygiene and greater user safety,” Mr O’Donohue said.
Basketball Ballarat Chief Executive Officer, Neville Ivey, is excited to see this new infrastructure added to the 3×3 outdoor basketball area.
“All of us at Basketball Ballarat are thrilled to see a new Choose Tap drinking fountain installed as part of the new 3×3 outdoor basketball courts at Selkirk Stadium,” Mr Ivey said.
“These fountains allow all participants and spectators to access fresh water to refill their reusable drink bottles and stay hydrated across the venue, both inside and out.
“The Ballarat Miners advocate making tap water your drink of choice and continue to promote the benefits of having a balanced and active lifestyle, across the local community,” he said.
CHW reusable stainless-steel drink bottles, are available from the Ballarat Miners store at Selkirk Stadium, as part of the Choose Tap program. All sales of these bottles are donated to local charity, WRISC Family Violence support.
