Tweed MP Geoff Provest with Cudgen Cricket Club

Tweed sporting organisations have received a welcome boost with the announcement of the Local Sport Grants Program by the NSW Government.

Member for Tweed, Geoff Provest, said the grants would provide essential funds to sixteen local sporting organisations to increase participation, purchase equipment and improve facilities, as well as lifting communities emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic.

‘Sport is a way of life in our community and the Local Sport Grant Program is another excellent example of the NSW Government delivering for the people of Tweed,’ said Mr Provest.

‘These grants provide vital funds to our local clubs to help with the purchase of uniforms, shade shelters and training courses.’

The successful sporting groups include: Cabarita Boardriders, Pottsville Cricket Club, Casuarina Beach Hockey Club and Pottsville Beach Soccer.

There is a complete list of successful applicants at sport.nsw.gov.au.
