Member for Mulgoa, Tanya Davies MP visited Colyton-St Clair Little Athletics Centre and Penrith City Softball Association to announce Community Building Partnership grants for both sporting clubs.
The Colyton-St Clair Little Athletics Centre received a $13,655 grant for new long jump pits at Saunders Oval in St Clair.
The $13,655 grant provided the funding to upgrade and repair the western field long jump pit, as well as replacing and lengthening the concrete surface of the northern run up to 20m. The grant also saw the replacement of the synthetic surface of the southern run by up to 27m.
Tanya Davies also visited the Penrith City Softball Association to announce a $4,000 grant for the sporting club to host the Panther Paws Under 11 Softball Tournament.
“Our sporting clubs are the lifeblood of our community,” Tanya Davies said.
“It is vital that as a Government we support every sporting club to ensure they can continue to provide the community with a range of invaluable skills.”
“Participation in sport contributes to health and wellbeing of individuals and communities and that is why the NSW Government is committed to supporting our local clubs to maintain and grow participation.”
“Between the Community Building Partnerships Fund, the new Greater Sydney Sports Facility Fund, the Local Sport Grant program and many more, we are committed to upgrading and providing new infrastructure for sporting clubs across the community,” Tanya Davies said.
“I encourage all sporting clubs to contact me to discuss the needs for your sporting club.”
