At Pearcedale Recreation Reserve, the single court will be repositioned, and the upgrades will deliver two new plexi-pave courts complete with lighting, so the Pearcedale Panthers Football Netball Club has more opportunities to play, train and host local competition.
The Dromana Tigers Football Netball Club will also expand their training and game day capacity with a new lit-up acrylic court to be put in at Dromana Recreation Reserve.
The Government program focuses on delivering upgrades in areas impacted by natural disasters or communities with high socio-economic disadvantage, strong population growth or other economic challenges.
Established in 2005, the program is a partnership with Netball Victoria, the Australian Football League, and AFL Victoria to help netball and football clubs across the state to meet growing demand and welcome even more members. So far, the program has delivered more than $35 million to support more than 550 projects.
Better sport and recreation facilities make it easier for players, coaches, umpires and supporters of all abilities to get involved in local sport and lead healthy and active lifestyles.
The Victorian Government has invested more than $1.2 billion in community sport and recreation infrastructure since 2014.
This includes another $88 million from the Victorian Budget 2022-23 to continue the flagship Local Sports Infrastructure Fund, game-changing Female Friendly Facilities Fund and the popular Country Football and Netball Program.
