Community Recreation and Sports Facilities Program Winners

I recently attended Buttery Reserve with the Hon. Corey Wingard MP to present Mayor of the City of Norwood, Payneham and St Peters, Robert Bria with two Community and Recreation Sport Facilities Program (CRSFP) Sporting Grants:

  • Buttery Reserve - $450,000 to assist with a surface, fencing, access and lighting upgrade
  • Payneham Oval Tennis Courts - $375,000 to assist with a surface, fencing, lighting, storeroom and shelter upgrade.

Buttery Reserve is the home of Norwood Tennis Club, Norwood Croquet Club and China Painters Association. East Adelaide Payneham Tennis Club is based at the Payneham Oval Tennis Club and will in future take over the running of the courts including public hire.

The Community Recreation and Sports Facilities Program provides access to funding for the development of sustainable, functional, inclusive and fit for purpose recreation and sports facilities that meet the current and future needs of the South Australian community.

It is always great to see local clubs securing the funds that they need to ensure they have the facilities in place to remain active into the future.

Here I am with Mayor Robert Bria, Andrew Tasiopoulos (Committee Member, Norwood Tennis Club) and Hon Corey Wingard, Minister for Recreation, Sport and Racing at the official handing over of the grant.
