Women’s change rooms at Victory Park

Good news for the female players of the Cobras Soccer Club and West Bentleigh Cricket Club, the ageing pavilion at Victory Park is set to for a makeover with new female friendly change rooms on the way, thanks to a funding boost from the Andrews Government.

Minister for Sport, John Eren today announced $221,375 funding boost towards the game changing transformation of the change rooms, made possible by the government’s 2018-19 Female Friendly Facilities Fund.

Victorian sports clubs are the lifeblood of our suburbs, and they deserve modern, accessible, and safe facilities. The Andrews Government is getting on with delivering them.

The fund is helping clubs like the Cobras Soccer Club and West Bentleigh Cricket Club with new sport and active recreation facilities and rejuvenating tired grounds and ageing clubrooms across the state.

The pavilion upgrades will provide much needed female friendly facilities for the club to grow its female membership base and provide a great venue for local sport and recreation as well as community groups for local get together.

The boost is part of our commitment to promoting sports and active recreation, and encouraging all Victorians to get involved and enjoy the sport and recreation they love.

Across Victoria we’ve invested more than $420 million in community sport and recreation facilities getting more people moving across the state and helping bring communities together.

It’s backed by almost half a billion dollars in the Victorian Budget 2018/19 to ensure sport and active recreation continue to be accessible to everyone regardless of gender or location.

Minster Eren acknowledged Glen Eira City Council’s for its commitment and financial contribution to the project.
