Name change re­flects club’s new sta­tus

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

A VIC­TO­RIA Park-based triathlon club has re­branded it­self in a move to help its ju­niors com­pete on a big­ger stage.

Eclipse Fit­ness changed its name on Au­gust 1 to the Eclipse Per­for­mance Cen­tre.

Di­rec­tor and as­sis­tant coach Bon­nie Durham said the de­ci­sion to change the name and busi­ness struc­ture to a not-for-profit com­pany was some­thing that was com­ing for the past 18 months.

“The de­ci­sion was made so we can at­tract more fund­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and then send our ath­letes to the eastern states to per­form against other high per­for­mance ath­letes,” she said, adding that it would be eas­ier as a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion to raise money.

The club will hold an open day at the Aqual­ife Cen­tre in Vic­to­ria Park on Septem­ber 10.
