In December last year, Wycheproof Lawn Tennis Club (WLTC) player Mary-Anne Pollard was nominated and accepted into the Sunraysia Academy of Sport 2015 Tennis program. The program, supported by Tennis Victoria, provides junior athletes with a high performance sporting program within our region by enhancing pathways for young athletes to achieve their elite sporting and personal ambitions.
As part of the 2015 SAS Tennis Program, Mary-Anne (pictured with WLTC president, Rob Elder) is required to travel to tournaments throughout Victoria. To support her in her endeavours the Wycheproof Lawn Tennis Club applied for a VicTalent grant, in the Victorian Government 2015 Phase 2 funding rounds, and was successful.
VicTalent provides a $500 travel assistance grant to community sport and recreation organisations in rural and regional Victoria to assist athletes, coaches, officials and teams with the travel costs of training and competition. The grant will help cover costs involved in travelling to training and competition events.
Wycheproof Lawn Tennis Club Meeting Wednesday 5 August at 7pm at the Royal Mail Hotel.
