The addition of two change rooms and a unisex umpire’s room along with a player’s race and cover, ensures even more women and girls get their chance to play the sports they love.
It’s not just the Panthers growing ranks of football and cricket players that benefit, local schools and community groups will also have access to the new female friendly facilities.
