The Female Friendly Facilities Fund is part of the Labor Government’s $100 million Community Sports Infrastructure Fund, which is upgrading sport and recreation facilities across the state for all Victorians.
Other Community Sports Infrastructure Fund initiatives include upgrading cricket grounds and grassroots training facilities to keep up with spiralling participation rates, aquatic centres, minor facilities works and planning grants.
Local sports clubs deserve modern, safe facilities. The Labor Government promised them, and is getting on with delivering them. The Community Sport Infrastructure Fund includes $23 million towards community sporting facility projects across Victoria – and many are already under way.
The Labor Government is also rolling out 1000 life-saving defibrillators to local sports clubs across Victoria. Applications are now open. For more information or to apply online, visit www.sport.vic.gov.au
Quotes attributable to Minister for Sport John Eren
“Community sport is the heart and soul of our suburbs and towns. Labor promised to upgrade facilities for all Victorians, and we’re getting on with building them.”
“We are committed to giving all Victorians access to the sporting facilities they deserve. Not just some Victorians, not just the most gifted Victorians – all Victorians.”
“Women are joining grassroots clubs at record numbers, but too often their facilities are either rundown or non- existent. Every player deserves equal facilities.”
