A grant of almost $20,000 will help the Kyogle Rugby League Club upgrade its change rooms and install women’s toilets.
‘This is great news for the club and the community,’ federal member for Page Kevin Hogan announced.
‘Both the upgrade of the dressing shed for older players and the new women’s toilet have been on the club’s wish list for a long-time.
‘I am very happy to give them this grant, which will allow the club to be part of the newly created Northern Rivers Women’s League Tag competition.
The Kyogle New Park Grounds is currently used by about 400 players in the Kyogle Senior and Junior Rugby League clubs, Kyogle Touch Association, Little League and several other organisations.
The Kyogle Senior Rugby League Club will match the federal government grant dollar for dollar.
Club president Simon Tough said the upgraded facilities would be a ‘big bonus’ for the local sporting community.
‘We have wanted to upgrade our facilities for a long time but haven’t had the funds. I would like to thank Kevin Hogan who made sure this grant was successful,’ he said.
