Sport in Orange has received a major boost, with the NSW Nationals in the state government announcing a $544,016 grant for Waratah Sports Club.
The grant was awarded for a project that involves construction of two change rooms for female use, and additional toilets for men, women, and people with disabilities and/or mobility issues.
The grant was part of Round One of the NSW Nationals in the state government’s Regional Sport Facility Fund which will see $50 million awarded over two years for new and upgraded sports facilities in Regional NSW.
NSW Nationals Upper House MP Sam Farraway congratulated Waratah Sports Club on receiving the grant which will improve sport infrastructure for the sport-loving Orange community.
“Sport is part of the fabric of the Orange community,” Mr Farraway said.
“The Waratah Sports Club project will provide Orange residents with a modern, fit-for-purpose sports facility.”
The Regional Sport Facility Fund provides grants to councils, local sporting bodies, NSW State Sporting Organisations, State Sporting Organisations for People with Disability, National Sporting Organisations, and private enterprises.
