Tony Clark, Labor candidate for Deakin, today announced a Shorten Labor Government will help build new women’s change facilities at Slater Reserve.
Home to the Blackburn and Nunawading Vikings Basketball Clubs, the Reserve provides basketball and netball courts to the local community.
Mr Clark said Labor’s $100,000 investment would ensure local sportswomen had access to the amenities they needed, and a step closer to bringing Big V basketball back to Blackburn.
“With over 1,500 families and 2,200 participating players, these clubs play a huge role in our local community,” he said.
“By building new women’s change facilities, we’re ensuring our daughters have the same opportunities as our sons.
“As well as promoting a healthy lifestyle, this project will help create a place that brings people together from across our community.”
The planning and construction will be coordinated with Whitehorse Council.
