Small Grants a win for three WA Clubs

by Aaron Delaporte

The July 2021/22 round of Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) Small Grants funding was announced yesterday with three WA bowling clubs to benefit amongst the 22 recipients sharing in $900,000 worth of funding.

The funds allocated to Bedford Bowling Club Inc ($77,186), Morley Noranda Recreation Club ($90,909) and Osborne Park Bowling Club ($84,382) will go towards the conversion of grass bowling greens to synthetic plus additional LED lighting at Osborne Park. The value of synthetic greens includes a reduced cost to clubs for upkeep, compared to grass, along with the additional benefits of increased playing availability as they can be used all year round.

As part of the media statement released yesterday Tony Buti, Sport and Recreation Minister made these comments

“The McGowan Government is committed to developing high-quality sport and recreation facilities to help keep Western Australians healthy and active.

“Through CSRFF, we are investing in the development of quality physical environments in which people can enjoy sport and recreation.

“It’s fantastic to see so many sport and recreation projects across the State benefitting from this funding, which will help increase participation in sport and recreation.”

Bowls WA would like to congratulate these clubs on their successful applications, acknowledge the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) who administer the grants for their continued support of WA bowling clubs and also thank Regional Bowls Manager Clive Adams for the support he provided clubs during the application process.
