ACT Opposition Leader Zed Seselja and ACT Shadow Minister for Sport Steve Doszpot announced today that if elected, a Canberra Liberals Government will provide $350,000 to upgrade Gowrie oval. Mr Seselja said this is part of the Canberra Liberals’ $3.5 million commitment to improve Canberra’s community sports facilities.
“Gowrie oval has been badly neglected by the ACT Labor Government and is in desperate need of upgrades before it becomes unusable,” Mr Seselja said.
“That’s why if elected, the Canberra Liberals will commit $350,000 towards getting the oval back on track. We would consult with the sporting clubs which use the oval on the improvements, which could include club house and seating upgrades.
“This is on top of the Canberra Liberals’ commitment to halve ground training and match fees for junior sports,” Mr Seselja concluded.
Mr Doszpot said the Canberra Liberals are committed to making it easier for children to be involved in sport.
“By improving sporting grounds and cutting training and match fees, we hope to encourage greater participation in these important activities,” Mr Doszpot said.
“Sporting facility upgrades and fee cuts are an important part of the Canberra Liberals’ plan to give Canberrans better local services and lower rates and charges.”
