After two seasons without training nets at Banksia Reserve, the cricketers of Beaumaris Cricket Club are joining Bayside City Council to call for the immediate relocation of the Telstra mobile phone tower at the Reserve to allow the nets to be built.

Bayside City Council Mayor Cr Michael Heffernan said despite Telstra recently agreeing to commence the relocation on 1 August 2019, the work is yet to commence and they have not provided any formal update.
