Sports clubs across Tweed have received funding for new equipment, programs and facilities to get more people involved in sport following the awarding of grants under the NSW Government’s Local Sport Grant Program.

Seven sports clubs were among 836 sporting organisations across NSW to share in $3.9 million funding through the program.

$49,390 in total was awarded for the following projects across the Tweed electorate:

  • Tweed Heads Croquet Club – Spring Festival of Golf Croquet
  • Kingscliff Swimming Club – Laptop and specific software
  • Kamilaroi Equestrian & Performance Horses – Updated coaching program
  • Tweed United Football Club – Dressing room upgrade, and training & development program for Shooting Stars All Girl Teams
  • Northern Rivers Baseball Club – Equipment and uniforms
  • Cabarita Beach Bowls & Sporting Club – Lawn bowls sun protection upgrade
  • Tweed Heads Tennis Club – Safer bathrooms upgrade

Member for Tweed, Geoff Provest, said the grants would help local clubs to get more people involved in sport.

“Sport is a way of life in our community,” Mr Provest said

“With community sporting competitions returning to normal following two pandemic-affected seasons, these grants will support both people returning to sport and those participating for the first time.”

Grants up to $20,000 were available under the Program with up to $50,000 available in each electorate.
