LABOR GOVERNMENT GIVING THE KILSYTH COMMUNITY THE BEST SPORT AND RECREATION FACILITIES

The Andrews Labor Government is getting on with the job of giving the Kilsyth community the great sport and recreation facilities it deserves.

James Merlino MP, Member for Monbulk today announced a $48,000 Community Sports Infrastructure Fund grant to deliver a cricket practice net facility at Pinks Reserve. The modern and functional multipurpose cricket net facility will replace abandoned nets to service the growing needs of the junior and senior members of the Kilsyth Cricket Club and the local Kilsyth community.

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.
