Thirty two NSW sporting organisations are off to a winning start following the awarding of grants in the Greater Cities Sports Facility Fund by the NSW Government.

Riding for the Disabled Tall Timbers has shared in more than $20 million for new and upgraded sports and recreational facilities in Round 2 of the Fund.

Member for Castle Hill Ray Williams MP said the awarding of funding was a welcome boost for local sport.

“This is about recognising the critical role local sport infrastructure plays in keeping our communities healthy, active and connected,” Mr Williams said.

“The awarding of these grants provides hope that 2022 will be a better year for sport and recreation across NSW.”

The Greater Cities Facility Fund has provided up to $49 million over two years to increase participation and promote healthy lifestyles across NSW.

Minister for Sport Stuart Ayres said 32 sporting organisations were successful in being awarded funding in Round 2 of the Fund.

“Investing in new and existing sports infrastructure allows more people to experience the benefits of participating in sport and active recreation,” Mr Ayres said.

“Projects that encourage the participation of women and girls and people with a disability are a focus of the Fund and it’s fantastic to see so many inclusive projects that will enable people of all ages and abilities to get active.”

The Fund provided grants from $100,000 to $1 million to eligible sport and recreation organisations and councils for projects such as lighting, amenity and change-room upgrades.
