Local clubs to benefit from Active Club grants

Published on 11 October 2023

A large number of Barossa clubs are the beneficiaries of the latest Active Club grant program, with successful applicants recently announced through the Office of Recreation and Sport.

More than 20 clubs throughout the region have received up to $3000 to assist with program and equipment funding, across football, bowling, cricket, netball, tennis, hockey, softball and more.

I have spent the last few weeks presenting certificates to local clubs who were successful in the grant program.

From basketballs to scoreboards to footballs, tennis balls and netballs - the Active Club grants pump thousands of much-needed dollars into grassroot clubs.

Our local sports clubs play an important role in our region for many reasons and every little thing we can do to help keep them thriving is a good thing.

Equipment can often be a big cost for clubs, especially the essentials that need to be replaced frequently.

Having a well-equipped club also encourages more people to participate and get active.

It’s been great to head out to clubs right across the region to present them with their certificates and hear about what they’ve been able to achieve with their grant money - I’ve still got more clubs to visit.

This investment makes a big difference to our local clubs.
