From September 23 until September 29, Community TAB - of Racing and Wagering WA - provided up to $4,000 to a club each day to celebrate the success of its two-year sports grants program.

The Harvey Netball Association was one of seven WA groups to receive grant funding.

Racing and Wagering WA chief executive Richard Burt said the initiative presented a great opportunity for the state's sporting industry.

"We were overwhelmed by the appetite for the support from the grassroots sporting industry in WA, over 1,000 applications for grants were received," he said.

"RWWA, through Community TAB, was able to support clubs throughout the State reaching from Port Hedland in the far north to Ravensthorpe in the far south, and we are proud to have been able to give back through this program.

"Grants like these mean so much to clubs and communities, we understand it takes time and resources to keep a club running, and we see the importance sport plays in local communities."

Since the launch of the program in 2017, Community TAB has provided a total of $168,000 in grants to 27 regional and 25 metropolitan clubs.
