Clubs ben­e­fit from equip­ment grants

Pilbara News - - Pilbara Sport -

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.
