Mr ANDREWS (Menzies) (13:42): I've been delighted in recent times to announce a number of significant grants to sporting organisations in my electorate of Menzies. Last Saturday morning I was delighted to attend the Templestowe leisure centre, a major netball arena in my electorate, and meet with members of the Doncaster and District Netball Association to announce the $125,000 pavilion upgrade, funded by the Commonwealth. This will support the netball clubs of Deep Creek, Donvale, East Doncaster, Eltham and Warrandyte, the Panthers Junior Netball Club and St Clement of Rome School, amongst others. I've also been delighted to announce $100,000 for a lighting upgrade for the Schramms Reserve, with Schramms Sports Club being the home of both football and cricket in Doncaster; a further grant of $125,000 for lighting at Rieschiecks Reserve, which is the home of the Doncaster Athletic Club, the Doncaster Little Athletics club and Victorian Masters Athletics Club; a grant of $38,750 for redevelopment planning at Zerbes Reserve, which will benefit the East Doncaster Cricket Club; another $125,000 for lighting at Boronia Reserve, which will benefit the Melbourne Chinese Soccer Association and the Doncaster Cricket Club; and, finally, a grant of $110,000 for a lighting upgrade at Templestowe Reserve, which, of course, is the home of football and cricket in Templestowe. These are all very worthy projects funded by this Commonwealth government.
