We have been one of two groups to receive a grant this month, selected from over 200 sporting clubs that applied from around WA.
Grants from organisations such as Community TAB are of great value to the club as they assist in progressing our goal of bringing baseball to young kids in the community.
In recent years we have been able to host Little League games on our oval where we host other clubs and see a lot of kids having a great day of baseball. Unfortunately, the backstop equipment needed to facilitate these games is a mishmash of nets which does not comply with the minimum standards, so this grant allows the club to purchase two new semi-permanent backstop net systems which comply with the minimum requirements and provide a safer environment for our under 12 year olds.
RWWA CEO Richard Burt said the organisation recognises the importance of grass roots sport throughout WA.“We understand that it takes time and resources to keep a club running within the community, so we are pleased to be giving the opportunity to help relieve this burden on clubs,” Mr Burt said.
“RWWA has been supporting the WA sport and recreation industry for many years through providing millions of dollars over 10 years to the Department of Sport and Recreation (DSR) and more recently through Community TAB sponsoring the WA Football League and WA Integrated Football Program.”
Community TAB will provide at least one grant each month to a sporting club to further their contribution to the sport and recreation industry in WA. Once a club applies for a grant, the application will stay within the pool until the grant is awarded.Sporting clubs can apply for a grant at communitytab.com.au.
On behalf of the club, thank you to Community TAB for this generous grant.
