SUNBURY SPORTS NET NEW PAVILIONS
Sunbury Cricket Club, Sunbury United Sporting Club and Sunbury Tigers Rugby League Club now have more space to prepare for training and competition thanks to the completion of pavilion upgrades at Langama Park Reserve.
Member for Sunbury Josh Bull today officially opened the two pavilion redevelopments and made possible by a $1 million investment from the Victorian Government’s Local Sports Grants Initiative.
Grassroots sports like soccer, rugby and cricket are as popular as ever, however up until recently local clubs were struggling to cater for growing demand with outdated changerooms.
There’s a new pavilion fitted out with female friendly change rooms, a social room, kitchen/bar area, amenities, storage and umpire change rooms.
The existing pavilion at the ground has also been refurbished and features new player change rooms and amenities.
Other upgrades include the installation of a new competition LED lighting system on pitches two to five.
Together the upgrades provide a great space for teams to take their game to a whole new level and for community groups and nearby schools to use for events, education programs and local celebrations.
The Victorian Government has invested more than $1.6 billion in community sport and active recreation infrastructure since 2014. From playspace redevelopments to pavilion upgrades, investments like these provide high-quality and accessible places for Victorians to reap the benefits of sport and active recreation participation.
They are all about creating jobs, stimulating local economies, and improving the health, wellbeing, and social outcomes for Victorian communities.
Mr Bull acknowledged the Hume City Council for its commitment and $1.75 million financial contribution to the upgrades.
