Member for Gippsland East, Tim Bull, today announced $50,000 to upgrade the Swifts Creek netball courts under a re-elected Napthine Coalition government.
The Swifts Creek Football Netball Club netball courts will receive a major upgrade under a re-elected Napthine Coalition Government, Member for Gippsland East, Tim Bull, announced today.
Mr Bull said the Swifts Creek netball courts would receive $50,000 in State funds towards the $64,000 project, with the Swifts Creek Recreation Reserve Committee of Management contributing $9,000 and the East Gippsland Shire Council contributing $5,000.
“The Recreation Reserve Committee of Management and the East Gippsland Shire Council have both identified the current playing surface is in need of significant repair and a re-elected Coalition will deliver this important project for the local community,” he said.
Mr Bull said the project will include major drainage works carried out to reduce the impact of water on the courts, patching and resurfacing works and linemarking.
“The existing surface is currently problematic for the netballers, especially in wet weather so this upgrade will be a big benefit for players and reduce the likelihood of injury,” he said.
Mr Bull said the Swifts Creek Football Netball Club is one of many sport and recreation clubs across Victoria which can look forward to new and improved facilities by using their own funds and resources to partner with the a re-elected Coalition State Government.
"Local clubs are the backbone of townships like Swift's Creek and the more kids we can get into local sport the better, so it is important we invest in facilities.
"A Napthine Coalition Government is committed to a more active Victoria and its projects like this that allow all Victorians to get involved with their local sporting clubs.
