Congratulations to Junee Golf Club, Junee Rugby League Football Club and Junee Junior Netball Association on sharing $16,297 in grants from the NSW Government’s Sports Grants program.
Steph Cooke MP, the Member for Cootamundra, presented the funding to the sports clubs on Tuesday — with $5,297 going to the Golf Club for a new mid-course shelter (which will also be capable of having solar panels added to the roof); Junior Netball will be resurfacing the court at St Joseph’s Hall thanks to a $6,000 grant; and Junee Rugby will be subsiding registrations for ladies league tag and uniforms.
Robert Vergano from the Junee Junior Netball Association said the grant would help them encourage more players to the sport. Terrence Trinca from the Junee Golf Club said the shed will be used for everything from a storm shelter for golfers to a spot where emergency vehicles can attend. Katrina Halliburton from the Junee Rugby League Football Club said the grant would help bring more women in to league tag, and benefit the whole club.
