Hammond sporting clubs receive $33,000 in grants

Sporting organisations across the Hammond Electorate have been successful in their application for grant funding as part of Round 36 of the Active Club Program.

Over $33,000 has been allocated to organisations in Hammond which will help sporting clubs to purchase sporting equipment, assist in training and development and club promotion.

“This funding gives regional communities access to quality active recreation and sport activities and facilities,” said Liberal Member for Hammond Adrian Pederick.

“It is terrific to see so many applicants in Hammond successful in receiving grants.”

Successful applicants include the Murray Bridge Amateur Swimming Club which received $4,200 to purchase competition grade starting blocks in time to host Swimming SA’s Country Championships.

The Country Championships will see over 400 swimmers compete in Murray Bridge over the 4 day carnival, held at the Murray Bridge Olympic Pool.

“The Country Championships is a great event for Murray Bridge,” said Mr Pederick.

“The event will see 29 teams, their coaches and competitors’ parents descend on Murray Bridge, coming from as far away as Bendigo, Broken Hill, Mount Gambier and the Eyre Peninsula.

“Without the purchase of the new competition grade starting blocks, the Murray Bridge Amateur Swimming Club would not have been able to host the Country Championships.

“I was pleased to be involved in the clubs application process and welcome all 29 teams and 403 competitors to Murray Bridge.”
