With covid-19 restrictions forcing leagues to cancel their seasons or reduce numbers, now is an ideal time for building works and upgrades to happen.
The list of sporting facilities in the Bendigo electorate requiring upgrades is endless. Many have been waiting years to be a priority for basic upgrades, others requiring significant rebuilds are waiting decades because there is simply not enough funding at local and state levels.
The growth of women’s participation in sport in recent years has placed a greater demand on ground use and without the right facilities clubs are struggling to schedule ground access for all teams.
For many clubs across the Bendigo electorate, upgrades to facilities will open the door for bigger opportunities and community events.
We, the undersigned call on the Morrison Government to fund a sporting infrastructure and maintenance blitz.
