The ever-increasing importance of the role women play in sport has been recognised with work commencing on the construction of dedicated changerooms for female competitors at the George Park Sporting Precinct.


Member for Bathurst Paul Toole said the Bathurst Bushrangers Aussie Rules Football Club received a grant of $528,850 from the former NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund (SCCF).


“The funding was recognition of the importance of the role women play in sport and will see the addition of four new change rooms, each with lockable shower and toilet cubicles, at the Bushrangers clubhouse,” Mr Toole said.


“There will also be an umpires’ room, also with lockable shower and toilet cubicles, as well as a storage room.


“These improvements to facilities at George Park are part of the push to deliver new and upgraded facilities, infrastructure and programs that make a big difference to everyday life in the bush.”


Mr Toole said projects such as this help make it easier for women and girls to be a part of their local sports team.


“Better facilities and support programs that encourage greater female participation at all levels and across all sporting codes will go a long way to levelling the playing field for women,” he said.


“Many of Australia’s elite female athletes started their career in regional NSW and we want to give the next generation every opportunity to discover, develop and hone their skills and prowess.


“It is so important that our female athletes have somewhere to change before and after training or on game day, instead of having to call in at home after work or getting dressed in a parked car.”
