Labor to upgrade Torquay Tigers' changeroomsMedia Release
An Albanese Labor government will upgrade the Torquay Tigers Spring Creek Football & Netball Club changerooms to encourage the increased participation of women and girls in AFL and cricket.
A $700,000 Labor funding commitment to modernise the changerooms was announced today (22 April 2022) by Federal Member for Corangamite, Libby Coker MP.
Ms Coker said the injection of funds was an investment in the Torquay Tigers Spring Creek Football & Netball Club, and especially in female and junior sport.
“The Torquay community has won the funding commitment on a needs basis. Torquay continues to grow, as does the interest in sport among women and girls within the local community," Ms Coker said.
“It’s important that women and girls have the facilities they need to participate fully in local sport. The upgrades will be an important long-term investment in local footy, netball and cricket, and the community generally.
“We have recently seen a giant increase in sports participation as opportunities and choices open up for women and girls. The surge in participation of women in sport is fantastic to see.
“Strengthening local club infrastructure increases participation, enjoyment and good health.”
