FLASHBACK: Supporters and team officials greet the A Grade Kingaroy Red Ants as they run on to their home ground ahead of their Grand Final win last season … the club has now received a grant to upgrade some of their facilities

March 21, 2024

Six South Burnett sporting clubs will share in more than $1.8 million after successful applications in the State Government’s Minor Infrastructure and Inclusive Facilities Fund grant.

Member for Nanango Deb Frecklington congratulated the clubs on their success and the benefits their major projects will bring to the region.

“Each of the clubs are receiving significant grants to help them build or upgrade their facilities,” Mrs Frecklington said.

“The Kingaroy Tennis Club will be constructing a brand new amenities block to replace their old toilet block. The upgrade will create opportunities for the club by providing a new space which is accessible, safe, clean and functional.

“At the Kingaroy Golf Club, the grant will help replace the old irrigation system to help the club provide a better and more reliable playing experience, encourage new members to attend, and current members and guests to return more often.

“The Nanango Netball Club will be upgrading their two grass courts to a hard surface. This will help the club further grow their membership, allow more competitions and carnivals to be played at Nanango and provide a high-quality netball facility for the region.

“I’d like to recognise the clubs on their success and their commitment to improving sports participation in our region.

“The South Burnett Regional Council was also successful in receiving funding to construct new amenities blocks to support active recreation in Nanango and Murgon.”

Successful applicants included:

  • Barambah United Football Club – build new amenities
  • Kingaroy Tennis Association – install modular amenities block
  • Kingaroy Golf Club – replace irrigation system
  • Kingaroy Rugby League – build amenities
  • Nanango Netball Association – Upgrade grass courts
  • South Burnett Saints AFL – build amenities
