Twenty one sporting clubs from across the Swan Hill electorate have received uniform grants in the latest round of funding from the Victorian Government.
These sporting clubs join 448 other clubs across the State who are sharing in a total of $435,000 of grants under the Sporting Uniform Grants Program funding.
“The funding boost to these clubs will not only benefit existing club players, but hopefully attract new members who are also keen to show their support for their club and look and feel part of the team,” Member for Swan Hill Peter Walsh said today.
“Team uniforms are more than just colours, they represent sporting traditions and community pride.
“The clubs will each receive up to $1000 towards their new uniforms,” Mr Walsh said.
The twenty one clubs from across the electorate to receive funding are –
Rupanyup Football Netball Club

The Sporting Uniform Grants Program aims to reduce financial barriers to participation by providing sporting clubs with an opportunity to purchase new uniforms, or a range of related items for club members including team tops, shorts, socks and footwear.
“These grants will assist sporting and recreation clubs to invest in new uniform clothing and footwear and thus attract and make new members feel more at home, helping to increase participation in sport as well as nurture talent,” Mr Walsh said.
“New uniforms can go a long way towards boosting team morale and encouraging healthy and active communities, and that’s why we’re proud to continue to deliver this initiative,” he said.
