SA sporting clubs share nearly $700,000

 

January 2018

Sporting clubs in the Murryland and Riverland regions have received an early Christmas present, with $19,322 allocated through the latest round of the State Government’s Active Club grant program.

The funding will be shared by five clubs to support sporting programs and help buy equipment.

 $4,500 – Barmera Clay Target Club Inc.

 $3,000 – Mannum Cricket Club Incorporated

 $3,672 – Renmark Basketball Club Inc.

 $4,000 – Renmark Hockey Club Incorporated

 $4,150 – Vitor Renmark Amateur Swim-ming Club Incorporated.

The Active Club program is designed to pump vital funding into grass roots sporting organisations, ensuring all South Australians have access to state-of-the-art sport and recreation facilities across the State.

The grants program supports the State Government’s priority to increase the proportion of South Australians participating in sport or physical recreation at least once per week, to 50 per cent by 2020.

Active Club grant program has allocated $2.75 million to sporting clubs around the State in the past year, including $695,000 in this funding round.

State sport and active recreation organisations, industry representative bodies, local government, schools, community groups, incorporated sport or active recreation clubs which do not hold a gaming machine license were eligible to apply.

Recreation and Sport Minister Leon Bignell said he was thrilled to announce nearly $20,000 in funding for local sporting clubs in the Murryland and Riverland regions.

"Sporting clubs and associations are at the heart of our suburbs and towns, and grants like this can make all the difference to small clubs. It’s great we can provide additional funding in recognition of all they do for the local community", Mr Bignell said.

"Playing sport is a great way to keep fit, make friends and get involved in your local community", he said.

"The State Govern-ment is a big supporter of grass roots sport – pumping a record additional $96 million into sport and recreation across the State" the Minister concluded.

More than 550,000 South Australians participate in sport every week at clubs, ovals and recreation facilities all around the State.
