Member for Wyong David Harris said the 7 projects funded across Wyong electorate would turbocharge participation in sport across all age groups and bring the community closer together.

 

“It is so important we continue supporting our local sporting clubs. They are the life-blood of our communities and key to ensuring our kids live a healthy and happy lifestyle,” David Harris said.

 

Grants of between $2,000 and $10,000 per project were available with up to $50,000 available in each electorate.

 

Projects funded locally include:

 

  • Cricket Multi Sport Back to Physical Activity Event

 

  • Cricket Equipment, Development & Player Uniforms Support

 

  • Winter 2023 Swimming Carnival

 

  • Cricket Nets and Synthetic Grass Upgrade

 

  • Hockey 5 a Side Program and Tournament

Minister for Sport Alister Henskens said the program will encourage people of all ages and abilities to enjoy the benefits of sport and active recreation.

 

“This funding will provide a cash injection to help improve sport facilities, enhance accessibility and hold new and exciting events and development programs,” Mr Henskens said.
