Comment News (Armadale) - - Sport -

TWO Mundi­jong sports clubs have re­ceived fund­ing for brand new equip­ment and fa­cil­i­ties.

The Mundi­jong Ser­pen­tine Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Club and the Mundi­jong Cen­trals Foot­ball and Sports­man’s Club have re­ceived a $20,000 grant from the Sate Gov­ern­ment.

The money will pro­vide two new gaze­bos, high jump mats, javelins, hur­dles and a new pub­lic ad­dress sys­tem for the lit­tle ath­let­ics club, while the foot­ball club will re­ceive three new fridges.

Sport and Re­cre­ation Min­is­ter Mick Mur­ray said he was de­lighted to see the clubs have the abil­ity to im­prove ameni­ties.

“Clubs with qual­ity equip­ment and fa­cil­i­ties do bet­ter at re­tain­ing mem­bers and at­tract­ing new par­tic­i­pants. Mem­ber­ships are what keeps clubs on their feet and thriv­ing,” he said.
