Construction is soon to be underway for Wynnum Ladybug’s $1.8 million netball court upgrade for as part of the Morrison Government Community Development grant.
Federal Member for Bonner Ross Vasta MP said the freestanding courts would make the sport more accessible for everyone.
“We want to encourage all Australians to participate in a sport and be more active and healthy,” Mr Vasta said.
“I was proud to get this grant on behalf of the Ladybugs as part of our commitment to see communities prosper and grow.
“The Morrison government wants to ensure sporting clubs have the best resources available to help our rising sport stars.”
Wynnum Ladybugs President Leah Webb said the upgraded facilities would benefit the club’s growing membership.
“We’ve gone from 190 members last year to 240 this year which means we really need our own space,” Ms Webb said.
“When we get a home base with the facilities we need, the girls won’t have to travel elsewhere for a tournament.
“We’re building a community for kids sport and this upgrade will help facilitate that.”
