The Andrews Labor Government is getting on with the job of giving the Birregurra community the great sport and recreation facilities it deserves.
Member for Western Victoria, Gayle Tierney MP today announced a $100,000 Community Sports Infrastructure Fund grant to deliver the Birregurra Tennis and Netball Redevelopment Project.
The project will involve the construction of two netball (one multi-use) courts and two tennis courts as well as sports lighting to one netball court and one tennis court.
The Labor Government’s Community Sports Infrastructure Fund is giving communities all
over Victoria the state-of-the-art sport and recreation facilities we promised.
Grassroots sports clubs are the lifeblood of Victoria’s suburbs and towns. The Labor Government is listening to communities, who say they need better sport and recreation
facilities to attract more members and grow.
Victoria’s population is set to boom – that’s why the $100 million Community Sports
Infrastructure Fund is so important.
Victoria is the sporting state, and the Labor Government wants it to stay that way. The
Community Sports Infrastructure Fund is helping clubs update tired grounds, and
communities build the facilities they need.
It includes a $10 million fund for women’s change rooms – the single biggest investment in women’s participation in sport by an Australian state government.
