LOCAL SPORTS FACILITIES TO GET MAJOR UPGRADES
Warringah Recreation Centre will receive a major upgrade to improve facilities and boost participation through the NSW Government’s Multi-Sport Community Facility Fund.
Member for Manly James Griffin MP said the funding was one of 39 projects funded across the State as part of the NSW Government’s commitment to turbocharge the take-up of community sport.
“This funding will modernise facilities for local clubs, associations and councils, and enable more local residents to enjoy the benefits of sport and active recreation,” James Griffin MP said.
“Sport is part of the fabric of our communities and our Government has a strong track record of investing in grassroots sport to deliver modern, accessible facilities.”
The Multi-Sport Community Facility Fund provides grants between $1 million and $5 million for new or upgraded sport facilities.
The Fund prioritises projects that provide inclusive and accessible facilities that enable more people to play sport.
Minister for Sport Alister Henskens said the NSW Government has now invested $200 million in new and upgraded community sporting facilities through the first two rounds of the program.
“These projects will not only provide more opportunities for people to play sport, but they will also generate a local sports facility infrastructure boom, creating thousands of jobs and delivering an economic boost for communities across NSW,” Mr. Henskens said.
“Regardless of age, ability or the sport you play, this program is delivering game-changing projects that promote participation and secure a brighter future for local communities across NSW.”
