Local sporting clubs in Ridgewood will enjoy upgraded facilities at Ridgewood Park thanks to a $190,000 investment by the Morrison Government.

Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter, has today announced that a re-elected Morrison Government will invest $190,000 to upgrade the lighting facilities at the park.

“Given how rapidly the area is growing, I know how important grassroots sport is in our community,” Mr Porter said.

“Importantly, this investment will allow the Quinns Rocks Amateur Football Club women’s team to play on Friday nights – which is great news.

“Other local sporting clubs such as the Quinns Rocks Cricket Club and the Ridgewood Little Athletics Clubs will also benefit from this important investment.

“Investing in grassroots sport is something I am very passionate about, and I am incredibly proud to be able to announce this funding.”

Director of Football at the Quinns Rocks Amateur Football Club, Peter Hunter, who has been fighting to get these upgrades for more than three years, welcomed this important announcement.

“On behalf of our members, I would like to thank Christian Porter and his team for this election promise,” Mr Hunter said.

“This will be a massive improvement for the Bulls Football Club – the lighting upgrade will enable our women’s teams to play Friday night games, and the women that could not commit to Saturday or Sunday games will now be able to participate.”

The Morrison Government’s strong economic management ensures that we are able to invest in important community projects like this.

This announcement builds upon other recent achievements in the area, including upgrading Belhaven Park, a $5 million commitment to make the Butler Sporting Complex a reality, a $300,000 commitment to upgrade Glumblossom Park, and an additional $5 million to build the North Coast Pool.
