Clubs receive equipment

Swartland sport clubs were recently gifted with much-needed sports equipment by Sports Minister Anroux Marais.

The handover took place at the Malmesbury Care Facility on Tuesday 23 February. The official handover forms part of the Department of Cultural Affairs and Sport’s Club Development Programme.

It serves to revive and capacitate local clubs that have become non-functioning due to lack of administrative capacity, access to funding for transport, training kit and equipment.

Clubs are involved in the programme for a three-year cycle, when attention is given to human resource development, which includes:. Sport education and training. Club support (transport, kit and equipment). Facilitating leagues and tournaments

The following clubs benefitted from the programme in the Swartland Municipality:. Koringberg RFC. Mooreesburg RFC. Darling RFC. Darling Cricket Club . Darling Netball Club . Abbotsdale RFC

At the socially distanced handover ceremony Marais said: “As we are now navigating to and through our new norm, we have prioritised optimising social behaviour through sport and recreation.

“We will continue monitoring the situation, and remain committed to working with our partners in ensuring the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on sport federations, recreation entities, affected events and programmes will be minimised to ensure sustainability of the sector.

“By providing needed sport equipment through the Club Development Programme, it is hoped that affiliated clubs are able to commence some of their very significant activities. This is instrumental in creating a province in which all who call it home can live healthier lifestyles, in safer communities, more prepared for tomorrow’s economy.”

Marais concluded that though physically distanced, the province is still socially connected through sport and recreation, and “ready to move forward and to do so safely.”
