Bayswater sport and community clubs offering free workshops

SPORT and community clubs in the City of Bayswater will host a series of workshops for residents of all ages and abilities.

Clubs including Bayswater Tennis Club, Morley Recreation Centre, Morley Gaels Gaelic Football Club, Perth Bayswater Rugby Union Club and Morley Scouts Group are offering free trial workshops throughout March.

The workshops form part of the City of Bayswater and Inclusion WA’s Bayswater Connect Program, which aim to foster inclusive communities and provide a sense of belonging for residents of all ages and abilities.

Bayswater Mayor Barry McKenna said it was important to grow a strong and inclusive community.

“Whether you’re interested in playing a sport such as tennis or footy, joining the Scouts, attending a music class or taking on the role of treasurer or secretary, there are many different ways to get involved,” he said.

“The Bayswater Connect Program targets local residents who are looking to participate or volunteer in their community but may not know what opportunities are available.

“It also assists local community, recreation and sports groups in the City to increase membership and volunteers and remove barriers to community participation.”

The Bayswater Connect Program is funded by the Disability Services Commission and VisAbility (Inc).
