Regional sporting clubs will receive $500 for new equipment for the summer season through the latest round of the Community Sporting Club Equipment Subsidy Scheme.
Member for Warren-Blackwood, Terry Redman welcomed the announcement that 123 regional clubs would receive a total of $61,500 to help increase and upgrade shared sporting equipment for club members. Subsidies for regional clubs are funded through Royalties for Regions.
“Better equipment for regional sporting clubs facilitates greater participation in sport,” Mr Redman said.
“This means there are more opportunities for people to get active and enjoy the health and social benefits of being involved in local sport and recreation clubs.”
Clubs set to benefit from the subsidy in the Warren-Blackwood this round include:
- Riding for the Disabled – Denmark Centre Inc
- Denmark Pistol Club Inc
- Tingledale Tennis Club
“Every sporting club in Western Australia has the chance to receive this subsidy and I encourage every club to find out if they are eligible, so they can upgrade their equipment,” Acting Sport and Recreation Minister Colin Holt said.
“More and quality equipment at clubs can help the formation of more teams, which means more people can get active and play sport in their communities.”
To date 1375 clubs across Western Australia have received a total of $793,500 through the Community Sporting Club Equipment Scheme.
The next round opens for applications in mid-March 2016 for a month.
