The Langwarrin Football and Netball Club’s brand new portable women’s change room is now open, encouraging more women to enjoy local sport in the area.
Federal Member for Dunkley, Chris Crewther said the upgrade to the facilities at Lloyd Park in Langwarrin was a response to the recent strong growth in female participation at the Club.
“It is great to see so many people in the community getting out and exercising. This much needed upgrade, which includes a portable change room and associated utilities to accommodate female players and officials, will assist the Club to keep growing its membership base,” Mr Crewther said.
“It also adds to the recent new scoreboard that we have helped fund at Lloyd Park.”
Minister for Regional Development, Territories and Local Government, John McVeigh said the Coalition Government invested $10,500 in upgrading the club’s facilities as part of its commitment to supporting healthy communities across Australia.
“This upgrade is a great outcome for local women interested in pursuing sport, providing all players with the high-quality facilities they deserve and encouraging greater participation in football and netball games,” Dr McVeigh said.
Mayor of Frankston City, Colin Hampton said this project has seen the introduction of a newly designed portable changing room for umpires added next to the pavilion.
“Langwarrin Football Club will now be able to increase opportunities for female umpires to participate,” Cr Hampton said.
The upgrade was jointly funded with the Coalition Government investing $10,500 and Frankston City Council investing $39,500.
