$21.8 million commitment to make the revamped Hammondville Sports Park a reality

17 March 2023

Hammondville Park in South Western Sydney will be transformed into a state-of-the-art sports precinct thanks to a $21.8 million commitment from the Perrottet Liberal Government.

Liberal candidate for Holsworthy, Tina Ayyad, welcomed the funding for the creation of a sporting super centre that will deliver exciting new sports infrastructure to be enjoyed by lovers of sport across the community.

“The reinvigorated Hammondville Park sporting precinct will encourage more people, of all ages, into local sporting clubs and cater for growing participation,” said Ms Ayyad.

“From upgraded fields to a brand new aquatic centre, the Perrottet Government’s investment will cater for Holsworthy sports clubs and player, and will attract lots of new participants and fans. This is where Australia future Olympians will be made - from our next Freddy Fittler to Australia’s first Football World Cup winners.

“The new sporting facilities is a perfect example of the positive impact on our communities that the Perrottet Government’s strong economic management and long term planning have delivered - ensuring that people from all walks of life have the opportunity to play sport, get healthy and have fun.

“This facility is already home to so many great local sporting clubs and organisations, and I can’t wait to watch it grow in the years to come.”

The Liberal Government’s commitment towards the $50 million Liverpool City Council project would upgrade existing sporting fields and create a new aquatic centre for the growing community.

The new aquatic centre will include a 25 metre indoor pool, a splash park and fitness facility. In addition, upgrades to the surrounding sporting precinct will feature new hybrid turf and synthetic fields, upgraded lighting, additional cricket nets, female-friendly changerooms and improved amenities for players and spectators.

Minister for Sport Alister Henskens said the NSW Liberal Government’s funding commitment would help create a modern and diverse sporting precinct for both locals and visitors.

“The NSW Liberal Government has invested more than $2 billion in grassroots community sport infrastructure and programs since 2017, delivering an enormous boost to sporting clubs and organisations right across our state,” Mr Henskens said.

“In comparison, Labor invested only $22.6 million in sport during its last full year in government. Under Labor, our record investment in sport will stall and our community can’t afford that to happen.”
