City's sport and recreational facilities need R26m boost

At least R26 million will be needed for some of Cape Town’s sports and recreational facilities in the next financial year.

The money required by the city will help fund the repairs and maintenance, of facilities on the verge of collapsing.

Mayco member for amenities and sport Grant Haskin says the city needs to spend R150m, if it wants to bring its 755 facilities up to international standards within the next three years.

He added that most of the city’s facilities were operating in sub-standard conditions.

According to the sports directorate many facilities did not meet the council’s health and safety requirements.

Another problem that council faced was the shortage of staff; making maintenance difficult as some facilities were often vandalised
