ACT Opposition Leader Zed Seselja and ACT Shadow Sports and Recreation Minister Steve Doszpot announced today that if elected, a Canberra Liberals Government will commit $350,000 to convert six of the Arawang netball centre’s grass courts to hard courts.
“Upgrading the Arawang netball facilities is an important initiative for Weston Creek, for both now and the future,” Mr Seselja said.
“Local sports facilities have been neglected under the ACT Labor/Greens Government, and sporting groups have been left to raise their own funds for essential repairs and upgrades to meet demand.
“The Canberra Liberals believe involvement in local sport is key to building strong communities, and will provide Arawang with a $350,000 grant to upgrade their courts if elected.
“This policy is part of our $3.5 million commitment to upgrading sports facilities across Canberra,” Mr Seselja concluded.
Mr Doszpot said the Arawang Netball Association is an asset to Canberra.
“The association has been providing netball facilities and competitions for over 35 years and run winter competitions which nearly 1000 people compete in,” Mr Doszpot said.
“Upgrading these facilities is an important part of the Canberra Liberals’ commitment to give Canberrans better local services and lower rates and charges.”
