Improving access to participation in sport and recreation

Jeremy Rockliff,Minister for Sport and Recreation

Twenty five sport and recreation clubs from across Tasmania will receive funding from the first round of the 2019-20 Sport and Recreation Minor Grants Program.

The Sport and Recreation Minor Grants Program is delivered in two funding rounds and helps improve access to safe and quality participation in sport and recreation.

Total funding allocated this round is $82,418, assisting clubs to provide equipment and undertake small facility upgrades.

Some of the projects to receive funding include:

  • a finish line chute for Cradle Coast Triathlon & Multisport Inc;
  • ground safety upgrades for Dressage Association of Tasmania;
  • purchase of equipment by the Tasmanian Nepalese Cricket Association;
  • resurfacing of long jump run-ups for the Huon Valley Little Athletics Centre Inc;
  • purchase of a computerised live judging system for Surfing Tasmania Inc; and
  • ground improvements for Wynyard Bowls and Community Club Inc.

The Hodgman majority Liberal Government recognises the power of sport and the role that local clubs play in engaging people from all parts of the community and fostering community connection, by providing places to be social, active and develop skills and values.

We support active participation in sport at all levels and we are committed to the goal of making Tasmania the healthiest population in Australia by 2025.
