The City United Cricket Club is among 12 sporting clubs set to start their seasons in top gear courtesy of the latest round of the Victorian Coalition Government’s Sporting Uniform Grants Program.

Minister for Sport and Recreation Hugh Delahunty joined Member for Polwarth Terry Mulder at the Club’s facilities in Colac today to announce up to $1,000 towards new sport uniforms for each of the clubs.

“Team uniforms are more than just colours, they represent local sporting traditions and community pride.” Mr. Delahunty said.

Mr. Mulder said the grants will assist sporting and recreation clubs to invest in new uniform clothing and footwear, so they can represent their team with pride.

“This will attract and accommodate new members, helping to increase participation in sport, as well as nurture talent.” Mr. Mulder said.

The clubs to receive funding are:

  • Bannockburn Tennis Club
  • Beeac Tennis Club
  • Camperdown Golf Club
  • City United Cricket Club
  • Colac Lawn Tennis Club
  • Colac Mallet Sports Club
  • Golden Plains Hockey Club
  • Golden Plains Soccer Club
  • Heytesbury Indoor Bias Bowls Association
  • Lethbridge Tennis Club
  • Lismore Memorial Bowling Club
  • Timboon Amateur Swimming Club

Mr. Delahunty said the clubs were among a total of 286 clubs across Victoria to receive a share of more than $277,000 from the latest round of the Coalition Government’s Sporting Uniform Grants Program.

“New uniforms can also go a long way towards boosting team morale and connecting communities and that’s why we’re proud to continue to deliver this initiative.” Mr. Delahunty said.
