North East Clubs Receive Active Clubs Grants

VicHealth logoThree North East sporting clubs have been successful in receiving an Active Club Grant as part of VicHealths funding for community sporting clubs.

Wodonga Water Polo Club, Wodonga Bowling Club and Wangaratta Pony Club all received funding to provide more social, flexible and accessible sport programs as well as more opportunities for people from disadvantaged communities to take part in sport.

Minister for Health Jill Hennessy said the Active Club Grants program would help more Victorians become healthier and more physically active.

“We want to make sure that all Victorians – no matter your age, gender or ability have a chance to get active and enjoy a healthy lifestyle,” Minister Hennessy said.

“This funding will support our hardworking grassroots clubs get more people moving and involved in new, fun and social ways of playing sport.”

VicHealth CEO Jerril Rechter said the grants were about making sport more accessible to everyone.

“We want to support Victoria’s grassroots sport clubs to provide a wider range of opportunities for everyone to get involved in, including people who wouldn’t normally have the chance to play sport,” Ms Rechter said.

“We want to give more people an opportunity to get moving in a fun and social environment which is why we’re funding more clubs to deliver social sport alongside their competitive teams.”
