It’s game on for the Moorabbin Little Athletics, Omega Cricket Club, the Racing Rugby Club and the Moorabbin Obedience Dog Club with the completion of the new pavilion at GR Bricker Reserve thanks to support from the Victorian Labor Government.

Member for Bentleigh Nick Staikos today joined Kingston City Council Mayor, Cr Jenna Davey-Burns to officially open the new facilities at the popular Moorabbin venue, made possible by a $3 million investment from the Local Sports Grants initiative.

The pavilion features new inclusive change facilities, accessible from both the athletics track and the oval, a multi-purpose social room, a dedicated space for dog club activities, multiple storage rooms, an outdoor spectator viewing area and publicly accessible toilets.

The new facilities are a game-changer for local clubs providing the perfect venue for training, local development programs and competition. The pavilion is also open to community groups to gather and meet.

The Victorian Budget 2023/24 has kicked in more than $213 million to deliver and improve community sports infrastructure and support initiatives that boost participation and inclusion in local sports clubs and organisations.

This brings the Allan Labor Government’s investment into community sport and active recreation infrastructure to more than $1.9 billion over the past decade.

Investments like these are all about creating jobs, stimulating local economies, levelling the playing field, and improving the health, wellbeing and social outcomes for Victorian communities.

Nick Staikos MP acknowledged Kingston City Council for its more than $4.89 million financial contribution and commitment to delivering the project.
