Horsham City Oval upgrade a step in the right direction

Member for Lowan and The Nationals Deputy Leader Emma Kealy has congratulated local user groups for their efforts to gain funding for two new netball courts and a major upgrade of the pavilion including new player and umpire change rooms at the Horsham City Oval.

Ms Kealy said Lowan was the only part of the state that had seen a growth in netball players since Labor’s lockdowns and restrictions.

“This investment to upgrade the Horsham City Oval netball courts and change rooms is well and truly overdue and is testament to the local players and clubs who have worked so hard to see this project finally become a reality.

“While this is a step in the right direction, much more significant investment is needed to continue the City to River Project,” Ms Kealy said.

“I am committed to continuing to work with the city oval user groups and the local community to ensure our river precinct reaches its full potential and the economic and social benefits it will deliver for our region are realised.”

Ms Kealy also acknowledged the efforts of Anne Webster, Federal Member for Mallee in securing more than $1.8 million in Federal Government funding towards the project.
