Almost 1000 passionate footballers and cricketers in Heidelberg now have female friendly facilities and oval lighting thanks to a funding boost from the Andrews Labor Government.

A $100,000 grant from the Community Sports Infrastructure Fund has seen 100 lux lighting installed at Burkitt Oval, letting clubs train later and host night games. It will also free both ovals up for training, reducing wear and tear.

A further $100,000 from the Female Friendly Facility Fund has gone towards the upgrade of Beverley Road Pavilion.

The old facilities in the pavilion have been replaced with accessible women’s player and umpire change rooms, giving local clubs the opportunity to accommodate a growing number of female club members.
