- Wanneroo City Soccer Club has received $400,000 from the Morrison Government for its new changerooms.
- The money is part of the Government’s Community Development Grants (CDG) Program.
- The project helps further establish Kingsway Regional Sporting Complex as a major sports and recreation facility for Perth’s northern suburbs.
Wanneroo City Soccer Club’s new changerooms are now a reality, thanks to $400,000 funding from the Morrison Government’s Community Development Grants (CDG) Program.
Dean Smith, Senator for Perth’s northern suburbs, is delighted the Club has benefited from the grant.
“This upgrade has the potential to significantly boost soccer participation at Wanneroo City Soccer Club,” Senator Smith said.
“It’s also going to enhance the wellbeing of many others from across the City of Wanneroo and the northern suburbs.
“The provision of quality sport and recreation facilities is essential to promoting healthy and vibrant communities.
“As restrictions lift, and community sport and leisure activities resume, getting out and enjoying places like this will take on a new importance.”
Club President Dean Bell said the upgrade, which cost more than $900,000, has been nearly a decade in the making.
Mr Bell hopes the six new changerooms, which offer larger and improved facilities for female players, will attract more girls to the Club.
Senator Smith believes the redevelopment will also continue to increase Kingsway Regional Sporting Complex’s status as a premier sports and recreation hub for Perth’s northern suburbs.
“This exciting project is exactly the sort of community-focused initiative the CDG Program is aimed at helping,” Senator Smith said.
The $400,000 grant is part of the Coalition Government’s $40 million CDG Program, spent on sport and recreation facilities to enhance participation in sport and recreation.
