Guy: Clubrooms for Park Orchards

Thursday 7 June 2018

Clubrooms for Park Orchards

If elected, a Matthew Guy Government will contribute $500,000 towards a major development of the Park Orchards Football and Netball Club.

Park Orchards’ sporting clubs are in desperate need of new facilities to cater for growth at the club.

With the Football Club recently expanding to include senior clubs, the current facilities are no longer fit to cater for the demand in growth and female participation in sports.

Players and supporters of the Park Orchards Football & Netball Club, Cricket Club and Junior Football Club will all benefit from this investment.

Only the Liberal Nationals will support local sports clubs instead of spending $225 million on Etihad Stadium like the Andrews Labor Government.

Comments attributable to Leader of the Opposition, Matthew Guy:

“A Liberal Nationals government will be proud to make local sport our priority, not funding Etihad Stadium like the Andrews government.

“Domeney Reserve is a major focal point for the Park Orchards community so it’s about time it was upgraded.”

Comments attributable to Member for Warrandyte, Ryan Smith:

“I am delighted to be able to make this substantial commitment to the future of the Sharks and to the many Park Orchards residents who are have such a passion for their local club.

“The community have given an enormous amount of time to achieve this outcome, and I am thrilled that they have been rewarded with this funding commitment.”
