A number of Kimberley and Goldfields-Esperance region sporting and recreation clubs will receive $500 grants to purchase new sporting equipment thanks to The Nationals WA in Government and Royalties for Regions.

 

Member for the Mining and Pastoral Region Dave Grills MLC said the Community Sporting Club Equipment Subsidy Scheme provided clubs across regional WA with funds to purchase new equipment.

 

“The funding will go towards essential tools for clubs, like uniforms, bats and balls, so they can continue to provide an important physical activity and social service to their community,” Mr Grills said.

 

Clubs receiving the subsidy in the Kimberley include:

 Kununurra Demons Football Club

 Broome Rugby Inc

 Derby Amateur Swimming Club Inc

 Ord River Tee Ball Association

 Broome Squash Club INC

 Kununurra Netball Association

 Lake Argyle Swim Inc.

 Derby Rodeo and Horseriders Association

 Cable Beach Football Club Inc

 

Clubs receiving the subsidy in the Goldfields-Esperance region include:

 Westonia Golf Club Inc

 Southerners Sporting Club Inc

 Esperance Triathlon Club

 Esperance Amateur Swimming Club

 Boulder Bowling Club Inc

 Kambalda Amateur Swimming Club

 Southern Cross Football Club

 Esperance Bay Yacht Club

 

WA Minister for Sport and Recreation Mia Davies MLA announced the funding today.

 

"This subsidy allows clubs to upgrade equipment which has seen better days, been ruined in the course of use or lost along the way. It's also an opportunity for clubs to add to their equipment stock and be able to field a new team or invite more people to participate," Ms Davies said.

 

Mr Grills said The Nationals WA recognised the important role sport and recreation played in communities across regional WA.

 

“Grassroots sport and recreation plays a central role in ensuring vibrant and active regional communities, therefore it’s important we help athletes in the regions reach their full potential,” he said.

 

Mr Grills said said every club in regional WA is able to access the subsidy and urged local clubs to check if they were eligible.

 

The latest round of the Community Sporting Club Equipment Subsidy Scheme will deliver a total of $312,500 to 625 regional clubs thanks to Royalties for Regions.
