Lancefield sports clubs are celebrating the arrival of female change rooms, putting an end to the need for female players to change in their cars or the public toilets.

Lancefield Football Netball Club president Leanne Backwell said the “fantastic facility” would be more than just a place to get changed.

“It will be something they can call home as well,” Ms Backwell said.

She said the female teams now had their own space for motivational messages and to gather.

The state government funded the $450,000 facility and local traders provided discounted materials.

Managed by Lancefield Park Recreation Reserves Incorporated, the change rooms were designed pro-bono by local architect Stephan Kosa and constructed by local builder John Poletti.
