Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

LO­CAL sport­ing clubs in the com­mu­nity will en­joy up­graded equip­ment thanks to the lat­est $500 hand­out from the Com­mu­nity Sport­ing Club Equip­ment Sub­sidy Scheme.

With the lat­est round of the scheme, 123 re­gional clubs re­ceived $61,500 and 111 metropoli­tan clubs re­ceived $55,000.

Bel­mont MLA Glenys God­frey said all lo­cal sport­ing clubs were en­ti­tled to the sub­sidy and she en­cour­aged them to ap­ply for the next round in March.

“The more equip­ment clubs have, the more peo­ple par­tic­i­pate in sport,” Mrs God­frey said.

“This means there are more op­por­tu­ni­ties for peo­ple to get ac­tive and en­joy the ben­e­fits of be­ing in­volved in lo­cal sport.”

Clubs re­ceiv­ing the lat­est grant in­cluded the Bel­mont Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Cen­tre, Vic­to­ria Park Bel­mont Base­ball Club, Bel­mont Cricket Club, As­cot Ea­gles Ju­nior Cricket Club, Bel­mont Dis­tricts Foot­ball Club, Carlisle River­vale Lit­tle Ath­let­ics Club and Bel­mont Ju­nior Foot­ball Club.
