New courts a smash for Everton
Thursday, November 10, 2022
A Liberals and Nationals Government will commit to replacing two unfit and outdated tennis courts in Everton, with brand new courts, bringing the surface of play up to a modern standard.
The $300,000 commitment delivers on the findings of a Tennis Victoria facility audit, which found that the state of all courts was poor, and that they would need replacing within the next 1-2 years.
Shadow Minister for Sport, Cindy McLeish, said that new courts will help to bring the community together.
“Sports is an excellent way for the community to come together and have a bit of fun.
“By providing new courts there will be more incentive to get active, and to use the wonderful facilities available.
“Having good quality tennis courts in country towns helps to make sports more accessible for those who live further away from a major sports centre.”
Nationals Member for Ovens Valley, Tim McCurdy, said that he was excited to see the new courts come to fruition.
“If we win government, this will be a fantastic result for the community. I have seen the pride the community places in their facilities, and we are helping to support that.
“New courts will also give the primary school the opportunity to use high quality facilities for physical education, without having to travel into Wangaratta.
“We are committed to providing the best sporting facilities for the local community, to drive more people to be physically active.
“Only a Liberal and National Government can deliver for regional communities.”
