TKT Ocean Beach Netball Club are ready to take their volunteer-run sporting organisation to the next level thanks to its success in Greater Bank’s #GreaterCentralCoast Community Funding Program, which has now given away more than $100,000 to support over 100 community organisations across the Central Coast region.
Topping the vote count in the August round means TKT Ocean Beach Netball Club receives $2,000, with monthly runners-up Bateau Bay Neighbourhood Centre and Dora Creek Rural Fire Brigade each receiving $500.
Michelle Giaquinto, Club President, said the funding will help the club grow, while keeping fees down.
“This funding is going to assist our club immensely, netball fees are expensive, and we want families to be able to afford the sport their child wants to play,” said Ms Giaquinto.
“Throughout the year we rely on sponsors and grants to buy equipment, train coaches and umpires, as well as buying awards for the end of year celebrations.
“We are a volunteer-run organisation with over 100 members but not as big as other clubs who compete under Woy Woy Peninsula Netball Association, and we will utilise the funding to grow our club.
“Using publicity and building a website would be useful. Growing our Club from 11 teams to 15 or 20 would be an amazing achievement and an exciting prospect.”
TKT Ocean Beach Netball Club is a grassroots sporting organisation that offers netball for women and children on the Central Coast under the Woy Woy Peninsula Netball Association.
The club promotes a fun, family-friendly environment where people come together to enjoy netball in their community.
This funding will allow for the club to grow their netball community to build a stronger competition and provide development opportunities for all members.
The September round sees a further $3,000 on offer to monthly nominees: Woy Woy Public School P&C Association, Better Hearing Australia Central Coast and Aruma.
The public online vote is open until 5:00pm Wednesday 27 September. You can cast your vote and support your community at greater.com.au/greatercentralcoast
