New infrastructure allows the club to train under race conditions and increase learn-to-swim programmes.
Beverley Triathlon marks official opening of upgraded facilities.
Upgrade made possible thanks to a $23,000 investment by the Coalition Government
The Beverley sporting community have today begun using the new-look swimming pool clubrooms and race equipment with the official opening of the upgraded facility.
Minister for Regional Development Fiona Nash said more than 5000 people attending the pool each year will benefit from improved facilities and equipment, including the regions aspiring athletes.
“Junior members and volunteers will also benefit from the upgrade as the new race equipment will enable training sessions to take place under competitive race conditions,” Minister Nash said.
Federal Member for Pearce Christian Porter attended the Beverley triathlon today and said the club will benefit from new infrastructure including a pace clock and race starter.
“Having a memorabilia cabinet in the swimming pool clubrooms will inspire younger swimmers by having a permanent display of awards and achievements of the club,” Mr Porter said.
“The upgraded facilities will increase swimming memberships and promote learn-to-swim programmes the whole community can benefit from.”
The Coalition Government invested $23,000 through the Community Development Grants programme funding with contributions from Beverley Swimming Club.
