Woolworths gives $100,000 in grants to netball clubs

Eleven netball clubs across Australia have received a share of $100,000 thanks to Woolworths Pick Fresh Play Fresh Netball Grants.

The grants will be used to help clubs reduce fees for participation, improve equipment, uniforms, and facilities and promote healthier eating by providing players with fresh food options.

Kelly Ryan, CEO of Australian Netball, said the impact of Woolworths’ support of grassroots netball does not go unnoticed.

“Giving clubs the opportunity to grow, whilst also removing barriers for young players to eat healthier and keep more active is so important. We are really excited to see how the Woolworths Pick Fresh Play Fresh Netball Grant winners use their funds over the next year to help more Aussies enjoy the sport we all love.”  

Ten clubs have been awarded an $8,000 grant and Berwick Netball Club in Victoria was awarded the inaugural People’s Choice grant of $20,000.

Andrew Hicks, Chief Marketing Officer at Woolworths Group, said grassroots sport is at the heart of local communities across Australia.

“The Woolworths Pick Fresh Play Fresh Netball Grants mean that more Aussie kids can live more active lives and develop healthy habits.”

Catherine Cox, Woolworths NetSetGO ambassador and former Australian Diamonds player, said the grants mean more kids can live more active lives and develop healthy habits.

“It’s so exciting to know that another round of clubs are going to have access to much needed funds to make improvements to their club.”
