Regional WA event celebrates sport in the community

13 December 2022

The Shire of Harvey’s SportDaze event attracted more than 50 sporting clubs, associations and local residents to the Leschenault Recreation Park on November 5 for a day of fun, community workshops and more than 22 activities. Festivities wrapped up with a movie at the park’s outdoor cinema.

Highlights of the day included an exhibition tennis match, burpee competition, inclusive wheelchair challenges and Proud 2 Play managing a Pride Round across multiple sporting codes.

The Australian Sports Commission was proud to contribute $41,500 to the event through its Regional Sport Events Fund. The program is investing $1.9 million to support Local Government Councils in regional and remote Australia to host sporting events.

As regional Australia recovers from the impacts of COVID-19, sporting events will play an increasingly important role in reconnecting and revitalising communities right across the country.
