Boost for Local Women's Footy

The Morrison Government has delivered $50,000 to upgrade the change rooms at David Grays Arena to accommodate the women’s teams of Peel Thunder.

Federal Member for Canning Andrew Hastie met with members of Peel Thunder this week to share the good news.

“By awarding this grant the Morrison Government is recognising the valuable contribution made to our community by the Peel Thunder Women’s Team,” Mr Hastie said.

“It’s only right that the women of Peel Thunder have facilities which reflect their status as competitors in WA’s top footy competition, alongside the men. That’s what this investment will help do.”

“These women are leaders and role models for young people in our community. They should be proud to have made it to this level and I can’t wait to see what they’ll achieve out on the field in 2019.” 

The grant was awarded through the second $30 million round of the Morrison Government’s Community Sport Infrastructure Program.

“The Morrison 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,” Minister McKenzie 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.
