Clubs benefit from equipment grants
Mountain bikers, swimmers, anglers and bowlers are among 123 regional recipients of the latest round of the Community Sporting Club Equipment Subsidy Scheme.
Under the scheme, successful applicants receive $500 to put towards new and upgraded equipment.
The Cape Range Riders, Amateur Swimming Club and Game Fishing Club in Exmouth and the Paraburdoo Bowling Club were all successful in the latest round of funding.
North West Central MLA Vince Catania said better equipment led to greater participation in sport.
“Sport plays an important part in bringing communities together in regional areas and every sporting club in WA has the change to receive this subsidy,” he said.
The next round opens in March.
