The Ball Is In The State Government's Court

25 Jul 2023

Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch has this morning called on the State Labor Government to honour their election commitment of funding to Empire Bay Tennis Club as the future of regional funding remains in limbo.

Mr Crouch said that with the State Government remaining non-committal to regional programs like the Regional Seniors Travel Card and the Stronger Country Communities Fund, they need to be held accountable for their commitments on a local level.


With the State Labor Government suspending the Regional Seniors Travel Card, refusing to commit to an extension of the Stronger Country Communities Fund and tip-toeing around the future of the Regional Apprentice and University Student Travel Card, it’s imperative we keep the pressure up to ensure they deliver their local commitments.”


“The ball is sitting in their court – that’s why I’m calling on the State Labor Government to provide the promised $100,000 in funding to Empire Bay Tennis Club within this financial year.”


Mr Crouch said that the tennis courts are a part of the fabric of the Empire Bay community and cannot afford to lose the much-needed funding.


“Our valuable community organisations need this funding, and that’s why I will continue to fight for not only this promised funding, but also all commitments promised by the State Government across the Central Coast.”
