The Federal Member for La Trobe, Jason Wood has welcomed the announcement of $50,000 into local sporting infrastructure as part of the Liberal & Nationals Government’s Community Sport Infrastructure Program.

The announcement was made today at the Pakenham Golf Club.

“The Liberal & Nationals Government understands that our success and prowess as a sporting nation begins with grassroots sports, which is why we have focused our investment on local grassroots sporting facilities such as the Pakenham Golf Club,” Mr Wood said.

“As outlined in the National Sports Plan, Sport 2030, grassroots sports help drive increased participation and promote social, health and community benefits of physical activity and sport – a key priority for our government.

Federal Member for La Trobe Jason Wood said the project was a significant investment in building a stronger economy and driving jobs for the long term.“This is a fantastic outcome for the Pakenham community, with the project receiving $50,000 towards a new golf driving range” Mr Wood said.

“Sport played an important role across the Pakenham region and the benefits of the Liberal & Nationals Government investment in the facilities will be felt right across the community.“Sporting facilities are vital for inspiring physical activity and health, but also for building community spirit and pride,”

The program will be managed by Sport Australia, the Australian Government’s leading agency for sport and physical activity.
