Hornsby District Softball Association’s home ground at Hayes Park, Galston is set to receive a sports upgrade after a joint-funding commitment from the NSW Government and Hornsby Council.
Two additional softball back nets will be installed at the ground following a $7,700 sporting grant from the NSW Government and a $12,300 funding commitment from Hornsby Council. The upgrade will enable the association to schedule additional softball games to be played simultaneously at Hayes Park.
Hornsby State Liberal MP Matt Kean joined Hornsby Council mayor Steve Russell to announce the sports funding upgrade and meet several of the club members.
“I would also like to congratulate the Hornsby Association’s under 19s softball team who recently won the State Championship,” Mr Kean said.
“This is a terrific achievement by the girls team who went close to winning championship in the under 15s and under 17s before clinching their first title against Sutherland.”
“The Mayor and I tried our hand with some softball batting training and we saw first-hand how talented this girls’ team is,” Mr Kean said.
Hornsby District Softball Association is holding a softball clinic on Wednesday, July 13 from 10-2pm at Oakleigh Park, Thornleigh. New and experienced players are invited to attend. No bookings necessary. Details:www.hornsby.softball.org.au
