Minto Indoor Sports Centre is set to receive a facelift and extension for locals and visitors to enjoy with a funding injection from the NSW Government.
Member for Campbelltown Bryan Doyle was today joined by Deputy Premier and Minister for Hospitality, Gaming and Racing Troy Grant and Liberal candidate for Macquarie Fields Pat Farmer to announce $500,000 for the Minto Indoor Sports Centre.
Mr Doyle said the funding injection followed a successful ClubGRANTS Category 3 application to increase the court size of the popular community centre and will also include new change rooms and storage facilities.
“This redevelopment will ensure the centre has the capacity to host major state and national sport competitions and ensure equipment can be stored safely,” Mr Doyle said.
“I’m looking forward to our region welcoming basketball, futsal, netball, volleyball and badminton events and having a first class facility we can all be proud of.
“This is an important and very welcome project for the community which will be delivered by the council and the NSW Government working together.
Also in attendance was Paul Lake, the mayor of Campbelltown City Council, which is providing $200,000 towards the work at the Minto centre. ClubsNSW CEO Anthony Ball said that not-for-profit clubs were proud to support the Minto Indoor Sports Centre.
“The $500,000 that has been provided through the ClubGRANTS scheme to support this centre is a great example of the role clubs can play in their local communities.
“We look forward to seeing the fantastic benefits this sports centre will have for the local community.”
