Stuart Ayres MP, Member for Penrith this week announced that sport in Penrith has received a major boost with Penrith City Council and Blue Mountains City Council receiving a share of $1.5 million in grant funding towards three local projects.

The grants are part of Round One of the NSW Government’s Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund which will see $50 million awarded to sporting bodies and councils over two years for new and upgraded sports facilities in greater Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong.

“Sport is part of the fabric of the Penrith community and these grants will improve sports infrastructure for our sport-loving locals,” Stuart Ayres said.

“These three projects will provide our local community with modern, fit-for-purpose sports facilities.”

Projects include:

  • Lapstone netball, facilities and courts upgrade,
  • Doug Rennie Oval, upgrading of the amenities building,
  • The Kingsway, new irrigation system and playing surface improvements.

Minister for Sport Natalie Ward said the Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund project will stimulate local economies, boost employment and promote healthy lifestyles across greater Sydney.

“Investing in new and existing sports is vital to improving the health and wellbeing of NSW residents,” Mrs Ward said.

“The Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund will promote improved health and wellbeing, and create a construction boom, boosting employment as part of the NSW Government’s multi-billion-dollar infrastructure pipeline.”

The Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund provides grants from $500,000 - $1 million to councils, local sporting bodies, NSW State Sporting Organisations, State Sporting Organisations for People with Disability, National Sporting Organisations and private enterprises.
