Our female participation program wrapped up last night with awards and a visit from Vincent deputy mayor @susan.g.vincent
Congrats to all who participated. Big thanks go out to our VP Matt for his work with @cityofvincent
and coach Peter Gerrans to get the program off the ground. It just goes to show, build it (& fund it) and they will come.
Repost from @susan.g.vincent
- Great to visit @leedervilletennisclub
last night for the last session of their successful Smash It, Ladies! tennis program. Supported by the City of Vincent through our Female Participation in Sport Grants, the Club offered a free 4-week tennis program run by coach, Peter Gerrans. The 55 participants got to improve their tennis skills, get fit with friends and make new connections in the community. Congratulations to Catherine and Bernadette for their awards last night and to Matt from Leederville Tennis Club for his work in setting up the program.
The Female Participation in Sport Grants aims to assist clubs to establish activities, programs or projects that promote and encourage equal participation of women and girls in sports.
At Vincent we want to get women and girls off the sidelines and onto our sports grounds. Are you part of a sporting club in Vincent that wants to improve diversity in membership and increase your player base?
