Pinjarra Cricket Club secures funding to build new nets and synthetic wicket

The Pinjarra Cricket Club is set to receive a booster shot in the form of $28,000 as part of the state government's grassroots sporting infrastructure program.

The cash injection will pave the way for the club to construct a synthetic wicket and three practice nets at their Sir Ross McLarty Oval base, significantly improving the facility.

Funded through the Community Sport and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF), the upgrades are a boost for a club that like many, has been doing it tough throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

"It's really great to receive this funding to improve the nets we have down here and to get a synthetic wicket," Pinjarra Cricket Club president and player Jessica Spargo said.

"This will be a massive improvement having more wickets to train on.

"We have a large club hosting women's, juniors and seniors, so to have funding like this to help our club is really beneficial to each and every player."

Murray-Wellington MP Robyn Clarke said it was important to support local clubs during the pandemic.

"Local sport brings our community together and helps keep people healthy and active - it'll be great to see Pinjarra Cricket Club getting back to what they do best post COVID-19," she said.

"I'm really pleased that the McGowan government has helped fantastic local sporting clubs like Pinjarra Cricket Club to improve sporting infrastructure and keep our community active."
