Bowling clubs reap the rewards of grant program

by Marketing on January 6, 2021

More than 100 South Australian bowling clubs finished 2020 on a high by being successful in the latest round of the Office for Recreation, Sport & Racing’s Active Club grant program.

Out of the 1200 organisations successful across the state, 101 were bowling clubs, and they received a collective total of $182,730.

The maximum amount available to clubs with more than 100 members was $3000, while clubs with under 100 members were able to receive a maximum of $1500.

Clubs have spent their grant money on things such as uniforms, COVID supplies, scoreboards, equipment and accreditations.

Bowls Australia Participation and Programs Manager James Wilson, who is based in South Australia, encouraged clubs to explore any possible grants available to them.

“Every dollar received through grants for these sorts of costs frees up income for clubs to spend on other things,” he said.

“There are plenty of grants out there to be utilised, it is just a matter of exploring your options.

“It isn’t a difficult process, but if clubs have any questions or issues, they can contact us at the Bowls SA office and we will do whatever possible to assist.”
