The Evans Head Bombers’ wanted to upgrade the club’s change rooms to provide better facilities for female players.
Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan secured two grants totalling $53,000 to complete the upgrade, and today officially opened the facility.
“Currently, the Women’s Tag Team players are forced to share an open shower room with male teams,” Mr Hogan said.
“The club came to me concerned about the lack of privacy for players.”
“The Women’s Tag Team started two years ago and the existing open shower room is not appropriate.”
“I was happy to support the club with funding that will allow it to refurbish the change rooms to put in showering cubicles, replace the existing toilet facilities, put in new storage and new flooring.”
“Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, the club has withdrawn from the competition, but I am looking forward to seeing them back next year.”
The club received $43,000 from the Government’s Community Sports Infrastructure program and a further $10,000 from the Stronger Communities program.
