Sport in the Blue Mountains has received a major boost today after the NSW Government announced a $533,100 grant for Lapstone Oval Netball Complex.

The grant was awarded to the Blue Mountains City Council for a project that aims to enhance the netball facilities through resurfacing and installing sustainable lights, upgrade of seating and construction of accessible toilet facilities.

The grant was part of Round One of the NSW Government’s Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund which will see $50 million awarded to sporting bodies and councils over two years for new and upgraded sports facilities in greater Sydney, Newcastle and Wollongong.

Parliamentary Secretary for Infrastructure and the Aerotropolis and Blue Mountains resident Shayne Mallard MP congratulated Blue Mountains City Council on receiving the grant which will improve sport infrastructure for the sport-loving Blue Mountains community.

“Sport is part of the fabric of the Blue Mountains community,” Mr Mallard said.

“The Lapstone Oval Netball Complex will provide the Blue Mountains residents with a modern, fit-for-purpose sports facility.”

Minister for Sport Natalie Ward said the Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund project will stimulate local economies, boost employment and promote healthy lifestyles across greater Sydney.

“Investing in new and existing sports is vital to improving the health and wellbeing of NSW residents,” Mrs Ward said.

“The Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund will promote improved health and wellbeing, and create a construction boom, boosting employment as part of the NSW Government’s multi-billion-dollar infrastructure pipeline.”

The Greater Cities Sport Facility Fund provides grants from $500,000 - $1 million to councils, local sporting bodies, NSW State Sporting Organisations, State Sporting Organisations for People with Disability, National Sporting Organisations and private enterprises.
