Camperdown Football Netball Club will soon be enjoying modern sports facilities thanks to a funding boost from the Andrews Labor Government.
Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney today announced a $204,700 Community Sports Infrastructure Fund grant to deliver the Camperdown Leura Reserve Oval and Netball Lighting Project.
The Project will design, supply and install oval and netball lighting at Leura Oval Reserve.
The Camperdown Magpies were among grant recipients in the new round of the Labor Government’s $180 million Community Sports Infrastructure Fund.
Victorian sports clubs are the lifeblood of our communities and they deserve modern, accessible and safe facilities – the Labor Government is delivering those facilities through its Community Sports Infrastructure Fund.
The fund is developing new sport and active recreation facilities and rejuvenating tired grounds and ageing clubrooms across the state.
In this round of the Community Sports Infrastructure Fund, over 90 projects will be supported across Victoria thanks to a $60 million boost from the Victorian Budget 2018/19.
It’s part of our commitment to promoting sports and active recreation and encouraging all Victorians to get out there and get active.
Across Victoria we’ve already invested $420 million in community sport and recreation facilities and added more than half a billion dollars in the Victorian Budget 2018/19 to support sport across all levels.
Ms Tierney acknowledged Corangamite Shire Council and the Camperdown Football and Netball Club for their commitment and financial contribution to the project.
