THE Kardinya Lakes Cricket Club has secured $4000 to put towards improved facilities, junior training wickets and support for their all-abilities cricket program.

The club was one of two chosen from around WA to receive a December Community TAB sport grant.

With funding for community-level sport harder to come by every year, club president Ian Del Rosso said it was a big bonus.

“We can look to improve facilities and more importantly ensure our coaches, young crop of first-year senior players and all-abilities players get the support they need to play cricket and help them achieve all they can,” he said.

Racing and Wagering WA chief executive Richard Burt said the grants were an exciting initiative for Community TAB and a great opportunity for sporting clubs.

“We recognise the importance of grass roots sport throughout WA and understand that it takes time and resources to keep a club running within the community, so we are excited to be giving the opportunity to help relieve this burden on clubs,” he said.

Community TAB will provide sporting clubs the chance to secure grants each month.
