Mr PASIN (Barker) (16:05): It was with great pleasure that I visited the historic town of Mundulla on 12 March to officially open the new synthetic green at the Mundulla Bowling Club. I was honoured to be there to officially represent the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development in opening the new green.

I was joined at the club by Tatiara District Council Mayor Richard Vickery, elected members of the Tatiara District Council and, of course, members of the Mundulla Bowling Club. The Mundulla Bowling Club was approved funding of $115,600 from the Australian government under round 3 of the Regional Development Australia Fund, with the council providing $10,000 and members of the Mundulla Bowling Club themselves contributing $103,600.

The upgrade will ensure that this recreational facility remains viable into the future. This is important for the people of Mundulla and the wider Tatiara community. The synthetic surface will significantly reduce the maintenance costs for the club and I know that the local community appreciates the upgrade, with the green already proving popular. Games are played at least three times a week, with around 60 players participating each day.

I commend the president, Ross Bennett, and members of the Mundulla Bowling Club for achieving this upgrade. It ensures the future of the Mundulla Bowling Club and will ensure that the club will continue to enjoy strong patronage into the future.
