Cricket clubs across the Coast are set to benefit from a share of $53,060 from the T20 World Cup 2020 Legacy Fund.
Member for Terrigal, Adam Crouch, and Member of the Legislative Council, Taylor Martin, made the announcement on October 11 that Lisarow-Ourimbah, Matcham-Holgate and The Entrance District Junior Cricket Clubs had all successfully been allocated monies through the fund, along with the region’s cricket representative body, the Central Coast Cricket Association (CCCA).
“This program helps local cricket clubs improve facilities and increase participation,” Crouch said.
Martin said the monies were secured under Round 2 of the T20 World Cup 2020 Legacy Fund which saw more than $2M offered to clubs and associations across NSW.
“This is part of a $6M commitment invested over three years in new facilities and programs to drive participation,” Martin said.
“The NSW Government is ensuring grassroots cricket on the Central Coast will benefit from NSW hosting games at the women’s and men’s T20 World Cup,” he added.
The CCCA will receive $10,000 to put towards development of girl’s cricket on the Coast.
Lisarow-Ourimbah Cricket Club will receive $3,860 to put towards the development of girl’s cricket at the club.
Matcham-Holgate Cricket Club will receive $3,200 to put towards boosting female participation at the club level as well as to implement a player retention program.
The Entrance District Junior Cricket Club will receive $36,000 to relocate its current nets and for general refurbishment.
