Nom­i­na­tions sought for grant

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Local - By DENISE S. CAHILL

THE UWA Vol­ley­ball Club – the old­est of its kind in WA – is in the run­ning for a $1500 grant but needs the com­mu­nity’s help.

The club has un­til the end of the month to get more nom­i­na­tions than other fi­nal­ists to se­cure the grant. Club trea­surer Rachelle Bram­mer said UWA would use the grant for new uni­forms and safety equip­ment.

“We need more safety equip­ment for our courts so we can host more games at UWA,” Bram­mer said.

Es­tab­lished more than 50 years ago, UWA has nearly 300 mem­bers and caters for beach and in­door vol­ley­ball.

Last year, three of its ju­nior mem­bers rep­re­sented WA and two made the All Stars team.

Aus­tralian vol­ley­ball player So­phie Go­drey, who cur­rently plays in Poland, is a mem­ber of the Craw­ley club. The an­nual Ther­moskin Com­mu­nity Sports Fund is in its third year.
