Federal Member for Grey Rowan Ramsey has welcomed the announcement of funding of $7000 to the Wudinna Tennis Club as part of the second $30 million round of the Federal Government’s Community Sport Infrastructure Program.
Mr Ramsey said he was delighted the club had been successful in its application and would be able to commence an upgrade to its clubrooms.
“The Wudinna Tennis Club is an integral part of the local community where locals of all ages can enjoy a game of tennis,” he said.
“Sport is a fantastic way to get out and exercise, develop social networks and it plays a really important role in rural, regional, and remote Australia.
“Additionally, country towns like Wudinna have also developed many of Australia’s elite athletes.
“Being able to upgrade the kitchen cupboards in the clubrooms will ensure the tennis club can continue to offer all these benefits.”
Minister for Sport Bridget McKenzie said the Liberal & Nationals Government understands that our success and prowess as a sporting nation begins with grassroots sports.
“This is why we have focused our investment on local grassroots sporting facilities such as the Wudinna Tennis Club,” Minister McKenzie said.
“As outlined in the National Sports Plan, Sport 2030, grassroots sports help drive increased participation and promote social, health and community benefits of physical activity and sport – a key priority for our government.”
