Media Release - A Coalition Government will fund Mt Evelyn Netball Change Room - 15 August 2013

An incoming Coalition Government will contribute $45,000 towards the construction of netball change facilities at the Mt Evelyn Football/Netball Club. Together with the $41,000 from the Yarra Ranges Council, this will enable the project to proceed next year.

Netballers suffer from a chronic lack of facilities. I am well aware that this is a problem across our region. This is a big step for one club, which has worked very hard to develop an innovative plan to reduce construction costs by utilizing the Northern Melbourne Institute of TAFE who will build the facility as an educational project.

An incoming Coalition Government will provide the Council with the $45,000 contribution, who will manage the project with the Club. John Stroud from the Mount Evelyn Football Netball club said :

“Our Club wholeheartedly welcomes the Coalition’s funding pledge. We have been strong advocates for local sport, especially for women, and have worked hard to develop and grow netball in the area.

“Tony Smith has always shown a keen interest in what we are doing. If the Coalition is successful, this funding, together with the Council funding will enable us to build very soon and provide our girls with somewhere to change, train, shower and have team meetings.”

This important local project is part of the Coalition’s Real Solutions Plan to build a stronger Australia and a better future – for all Australians
