Petition - Upgrade Canterbury Sports Ground

Help us fund upgrades at Canterbury Sports Ground

Since elected, Paul Hamer (Member for Box Hill) and I (Member for Hawthorn) have advocated for infrastructure investment in our respective electorates and have collectively secured over $60M in Hawthorn and Box Hill for upgrades to local schools and sporting facilities.

But there’s always more work to be done.

That’s why Paul and I are asking you to sign this petition to help us secure much needed funding to upgrade Canterbury Sports Ground.

Canterbury Sports Ground is home to three sporting clubs – Canterbury Cricket Club, Canterbury Football Club and Canterbury Junior Football Club – with a combined membership, playing group and supporter base of approximately 4000 people.

What needs to be done?

  • Build more inclusive clubroom and changeroom facilities that cater for younger age groups, veterans and women.
  • Expand the facilities to cope with growing membership numbers.
  • Build facilities that create a sense of belonging and inclusion for girls and women, and provide greater privacy.
  • Lift the clubrooms to address flooding issues and allow spectators of all abilities to enjoy watching the game.

Boroondara Council have provided the clubs with $2.2M for their renovation. But that is not enough to build the inclusive facilities the clubs require. That’s why I am working to help them secure the extra funding they need.

These new facilities will also benefit other sporting clubs and community organisations.  


Thank you for your interest. This petition has now closed.
