Keeping our sporting groups moving with Tasmanian Active Infrastructure Grants

Felix Ellis, Liberal Member for Braddon

More than 20 Tasmanian sporting clubs across the state will benefit from the latest round of the Tasmanian Active Infrastructure Grants Program.

The large stream will see more than $4 million provided to a wide variety of projects.

Ulverstone Golf Club will receive nearly $500,000 to install a new irrigation system.

Liberal member for Braddon, Felix Ellis, said it was great to also see the fantastic club contribute $200,000 of its own funds for the project.

“Under the Tasmanian Government’s 2030 Strong Plan for Tasmania’s Future, our Government is investing in local sporting facilities to ensure that our players have the facilities they need to play on,” Minister Ellis said.

“These grants are designed to ensure that sport and active recreation facilities across the state continue to be able to meet demand, are accessible and welcoming to everyone, and contribute to keeping our communities active, connected and inclusive.

“This funding round supports all sorts of different projects which encourage Tasmanians to remain active,” Minister Ellis said.

Our Government is about keeping Tasmanians active. That’s why our 2030 Strong Plan for Tasmania’s Future committed to a nation-first Ticket to Wellbeing Program.

“The two-year $1 million trial is based on the successful Ticket to Play voucher system, which encourages our young people to get active,” Minister Ellis said.

“Two vouchers worth up to $100 each will be available to senior Tasmanians those listed on a Services Australia Health Care or Pensioner Concession Card.

“Both of these initiatives will provide real savings and help older people stay mentally and physically active.”

Ticket to Wellbeing is expected to launch later this year.
