Congratulations to the eight Barwon sports clubs who will share in nearly $50,000 in funding thanks to the 2012-21 Local Sport Grant Program.

Our sports clubs have been hit hard in the last couple of years by drought and then last season mostly cancelled due to COVID-19 which means club funding for upgrades and new uniforms is a bit harder to pull together. This funding will see projects that Clubs have been fundraising towards for years funded, which takes a massive pressure off volunteer committees.

Sport in our communities is so much more than a game on the weekend. These clubs are essential in bringing people together – they’re a vital link in the social fabric of our towns.

Congratulations to the Committees of the following sports clubs.
