The grants will also provide more opportunities for people from disadvantaged communities to take part in sport.

Shepparton Lawn Tennis Association received $3507 for tennis racquets, tennis balls and marketing.

Mooroopna Football Netball Club has received $3000 for footballs, football jumpers, shorts and socks, to support women’s participation in football.

Shepparton Football Netball Club has been given $2407 for tackle bags, footballs, training equipment and marketing, to support women’s participation in football.

VicHealth chief executive Jerril Rechter said the grants would help more Greater Shepparton residents to make physical activity part of their day-to-day life.

‘‘This program is about supporting Victoria’s grassroots sport clubs to provide a wider range of opportunities for everyone to get involved in,’’ she said.
