Northern Beaches

Five sporting clubs on the Northern Beaches have successfully been awarded a share of $100,000 in Sports and Recreation Infrastructure Grants to improve their facilities and grounds.

Northern Beaches Mayor Michael Regan said the funding helps support local sporting clubs to install or build much-needed infrastructure.

“Sporting clubs are an important part of our local community, and they also encourage people to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

“Investing in sporting facilities improves the viability of our local sporting clubs who do so much good work in our community.

“There were many worthy applications from clubs and associations across the Northern Beaches so it was a tough decision for the panel assessing them. Congratulation to the successful recipients.”

In all, 16 applications were received requesting a total of more than $394,000; however, Council’s budget allocation was $100,000 for this round of applicants.

  • Manly Warringah District Cricket Club – to remove the two existing junior cricket wickets and to install three new junior cricket wickets at Seaforth Oval
  • Forest Hills Pony Club – to upgrade existing obstacles and install new obstacles at the cross-country equestrian course at the JJ Melbourne Hills Memorial Reserve, Terrey Hills
