Blue Mountains Sports Receive Christmas Bonus

Blackheath Golf Club proposed extension
Blue Mountains sporting organisations have received a Christmas bonus from the NSW Government following the awarding of grants in the Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund.

One Blue Mountains sporting organisation has shared in more than $20 million for new and upgraded sports facilities in Round 2 of the Fund.

The Blackheath Golf Club will receive $578,000 to construct a covered extension to the existing Clubhouse terrace.

Member of the Liberal NSW Government, the Hon Shayne Mallard MLC said the awarding of funding was a welcome boost for local sport which was hit hard by the COVID-19 restrictions.

"2021 has been a tough year for everyone, including our sporting sector with sport postponed due to COVID," Mr Mallard said.

"The awarding of these grants provides renewed optimism that 2022 will be a better year for sport and recreation across NSW."

The Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund has provided up to $49 million over two years to increase participation and promote healthy lifestyles across NSW.

Minister for Sport Natalie Ward said 32 sporting organisations were successful in being awarded funding in Round 2 of the Fund.

"Investing in new and existing sports infrastructure allows more people to experience the benefits of participating in sport and active recreation," Mrs Ward said.

"Projects that encourage the participation of women and girls and people with a disability are a focus of the Fund and it's fantastic to see so many inclusive projects that will enable people of all ages and abilities to get active."

The Fund provided grants from $100,000 to $1 million to eligible sport and recreation organisations and councils for projects such as lighting, amenity and changeroom upgrades.
