The new million-dollar 14-hectare sporting facilities were officially opened by the federal member for Page Kevin Hogan last week
The new grounds include an AFL field/cricket oval, two rugby grounds with lighting, six tennis courts with lighting, four sealed netball courts (with lighting for two), separate facilities for rugby/AFL, cricket, netball, and a tennis clubhouse, as well as car parking for 292 vehicles and bus parking.
‘This is great news for Wollongbar and the sporting community,’ Hogan said.
Greens member for Ballina Tamara Smith also announced the Wollongbar-Alstonville Rugby Club will be receiving $5,000 from the Local Sport Grant Program for player jerseys and training shirts.
All grades can get cheaper players kit, she said.
