FEMALE CHANGE ROOMS AND WHEELCHAIR ACCESS FOR MAITLAND BLACKS

Maitland Blacks Rugby Club has received half a million dollars to re-vamp its female changerooms and improve wheelchair access.

Former player Dominic Punch says it’s a huge boost for the club.

“The accessibility is a huge bonus, it promotes massive inclusivity in myself and any other people that need special access.” – Dominic Punch, Maitland Rugby Club Registrar.

The work will be finished by the end of next year.
