Players, coaches and spectators at Terrigal’s Breakers Indoor Sport Stadium will soon benefit from new facilities, with the NSW Government announcing a $271,544 grant on September 9.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, said the grant was part of Round One of the NSW Government’s Regional Sport Facility Fund.

“Thanks to this funding, the decades-old bathrooms and change rooms will be upgraded to provide modern and fit-for-purpose facilities,” Crouch said.

“Once completed, the new bathrooms and change rooms will cater to both male and female athletes, including those with a disability.

“Sport is part of the fabric of our community and basketball is certainly one of the most popular sports on the Central Coast.

“I congratulate the Central Coast Crusaders basketball teams as well as all of the staff and volunteers at Breakers Indoor Sport Stadium on this funding win.”

Minister for Sport, Natalie Ward, said the Regional Sport Facility Fund would help to promote healthy lifestyles across regional NSW while stimulating local economies and boosting employment.

“The Regional Sport Facility Fund will promote improved health and wellbeing and create a construction boom across regional NSW as part of the NSW Government’s multi-billion-dollar infrastructure pipeline,” Ward said.

The Regional Sport Facility Fund is a new funding opportunity from the NSW Government and will provide $50M over two years for new and upgraded sports facilities across Regional NSW, including the Central Coast.
