Six local tennis, rugby, football and bowling clubs will soon feature improved facilities after being announced as the shared recipients of $100,000 in grant funding.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said Council’s Sport & Recreation Infrastructure Grants Program aimed to increase opportunities for the community’s participation in sport, recreation and active play.

“Upgrading local sporting facilities encourages our community to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

“Congratulations to the successful grant recipients whose projects meet demonstrated community needs.

“Investing in sporting facilities improves the viability of our local sporting clubs who do so much good work in our community,” Mayor Regan said.

The six 2017/2018 grants awarded include:

  • $35,524 to Collaroy Tennis Club, to resurface two tennis courts
  • $19,030 to Forest Rugby Club, to develop a female change room, first aid and referee room at the clubhouse adjacent to the rugby field at the Forestville War Memorial Playing Fields
  • $15,000 to Manly Warringah Football Association, for a new electronic scoreboard at Cromer Park field 1
  • $13,973 to Mona Vale Bowling Club, to upgrade one bowling green and a new access ramp at the Mona Vale Bowling Club
  • $11,500 to Newport Bowling Club, for new shade structures on bowling green 1 at the Newport Bowling Club
  • $4,973 to Allambie Heights Community Tennis Club, for an upgrade to the clubhouse toilets at their Tennis Centre.

Under the terms of the program, applicants will complete their grant-funded projects by 31 March 2019.

Sixteen applications were received for the program which invites submissions for project funding between $10,000 and $50,000. Applicants who missed out this time are encouraged to apply for the next round of grants in 2018/2019.
