Andrews Government Rolls In $200,000 For Carrum Bowls

15 October 2018

A new redeveloped female friendly pavilion is set to be rolled out at the Carrum Bowling Club thanks to $200,000 in funding from the Andrews Labor Government.

Minister for Sport John Eren and Member for Carrum Sonya Kilkenny today announced that the club’s facilities will be upgraded thanks to the Labor Government’s Female Friendly Facilities Fund.

Victorian sports clubs are the lifeblood of our towns and suburbs and they deserve modern, accessible, and safe facilities.

The fund is helping clubs like the Carrum Bowls Club to build new sport and active recreation facilities and rejuvenate tired grounds and ageing clubrooms across the state.

The redeveloped pavilion will provide an opportunity for the club to better cater for female competition bowlers.

The boost is part of the Labor Government’s commitment to promoting sports and active recreation and encouraging all Victorians to get involved and enjoy the sports they love.

Across Victoria we've invested more than $420 million in community sport and recreation facilities to get more people moving and help 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.

Mr Eren and Ms Kilkenny acknowledged Frankston City Council and Carrum Bowling Club for their commitment and financial contribution to the project.
