$990,000 for netball facilities to Inverloch Kongwak Football Netball Club

An elected Liberal Nationals Government will contribute $990,000 to redevelop the netball courts, club rooms and install new lighting at Inverloch Kongwak Football Netball Club.

The investment is long overdue and will enable growth in netball participation and local sport for the entire community.

These new facilities will create a state of the art environment for grassroots sport to ensure local sporting clubs can keep up with population growth.

State Member for Bass, Brian Paynter is in support of local grassroots sporting clubs and has been encouraging clubs to apply for funding.

This project will enable growth in netball participation and local sport for the entire community.

The Liberal Nationals are committed to investing in our local sporting facilities and encouraging more female participation in sport.

Comments attributable to Shadow Minister for Sport, Danny O’Brien:

“It is great to see the funding go to local sport. The Andrews Government handballed $225 million to the AFL. A Liberal Nationals Government will never neglect and forget about grassroots clubs.”

Comments attributable to Member for Bass, Brian Paynter:

“I have worked with this club for a number of years and it is so rewarding to help achieve the funding that is so desperately needed.”
