Major Upgrades to Local Sport Facility
The Ku-ring-gai electorate will receive a $2,720,000 upgrade to a local sports facility through the NSW Government’s Multi-Sport Community Facility Fund.
Almost $100 million was awarded to 38 clubs, associations, sporting organisations and councils across NSW in Round 1 of the Fund which invests in new or upgraded multi-sport facilities to provide more opportunities for people to play sport and be active.
The $2,720,000 grant will allow the replacement of the existing hockey pitch at Ku-ring-gai High School, transforming it from a single sport facility to a modern all-weather multi-sport facility with accessible and inclusive amenities.
Member for Ku-ring-gai Alister Henskens SC welcomes the improvements for the local community.
“Playing sport with your team is a quintessential part of the Ku-ring-gai lifestyle,” Mr Henskens said.
“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.”
The Multi-Sport Community Facility Fund is a two-year $200 million program with grants of $1 – $5 million available.
Minister for Tourism and Sport Stuart Ayres said the Fund would keep communities across NSW heathy, active and connected.
“As communities grow, providing inclusive and accessible facilities that can be used by multiple sports is vital,” Mr Ayres said.
“This program is enabling people of all ages and abilities to get on the court or pitch and enjoy the benefits that sport offers.”
