The Serpentine Sports reserve is home to the Serpentine Foothills Polocrosse Club and the Serpentine Horse and Pony Club. These clubs are both one of the largest associations in our State for their respective sports and based here in the Shire.
The Serpentine Foothills Polocrosse Club has successfully received a $13,007 grant from the Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund from the Department of Sport and Recreation to complete works on the Serpentine Sports Reserve.
This grant will be used to install 60 new horse yards and 9 new watering points enabling tournaments and overnight events to continue to grow with the popularity of the sport.
The total cost of the new facilities is $59,200 and works are due to commence in October 2017, for completion in May 2018.
Shire President, Cr John Erren said ‘As the Shire has the largest equine precinct in the Peel, this grant will assist in ensuring equine events can continue to grow in our Shire along with the popularity of the sport, while providing quality facilities to users.’
