TWO local sporting clubs have been awarded grants through VicHealth’s This Girl Can campaign.
The campaign aims to get more women involved in sports.
Bonbeach YCW junior sports club was awarded just under $3000 to introduce under 13s and under 16s girls cricket teams, and a program for girls of all abilities to play netball.
Carrum Downs Tennis Club received $2700 to introduce a Mum’s tennis program.
Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny said “The This Girl Can campaign has been hugely successful at showing that women and girls, as well as a wide variety of people from different backgrounds, want to be active and live healthy lives.”
Over $700,000 in grant money was handed out to sporting cubs statewide through the VicHealth program.
