Community TAB of Racing and Wagering WA (RWWA) has awarded Kalgoorlie Triathlon Club a $2000 sports grant.
The Triathlon Club was one of four sporting clubs to receive a grant recently, selected from over 400 sporting clubs that have applied from around WA.
Kalgoorlie Triathlon Club Treasurer Ryan McNally said the club is very grateful to be awarded this grant which will allow them to proceed with the upgrade of their database and timing system.
“To a majority of our members, competing in triathlons is our chance to release from the everyday stresses of life and work towards an end goal and gradually improve,” Mr McNally said.
“To be able to show our members constant improvement in their performances through our planned upgrades, without placing additional burden on our volunteers is an exciting development we look forward to sharing.”
“To the wider community our club of members welcomes new participants to experience our sport where we actively promote exercise and a healthy lifestyle, which caters to all levels from beginners to professionals.”
RWWA CEO Richard Burt said the organisation recognises the importance of grass roots sports throughout WA.
“We understand that it takes time and resources to keep a club running within the community, so we are pleased to be giving the opportunity to help relieve this burden on clubs,” Mr Burt said.
Community TAB will provide at least one grant each month to a sporting club to further their contribution to the sport and recreation industry in WA. Once a club applies for a grant, the application will stay within the pool until the grant is awarded.
