NRL Wheelchair Rugby League’s ‘Come, Try & Play Project’ is the recipient of a major Sport Australia Participation Grant announced yesterday.
With the support of the National Rugby League and NRL Clubs, NRL Wheelchair Rugby League will engage with the community and hold Come N Try days in metro and regional NSW, Queensland, Victoria, ACT and Northern Territory, providing more opportunity for people to play Wheelchair Rugby League.
Minister for Sport Richard Colbeck announced successful grant recipients on Thursday, commenting, “Sport continues to face ongoing challenges as a result of COVID-19. These grants will help increase participation in sport and physical activity by delivering free, inclusive and high-quality programs for everyone to enjoy.”
“Through this grant program, we’re making communities stronger, more resilient and active.”
NRL Wheelchair Rugby League Chair Martin Meredith said, “this grant will have a major impact on the development of our sport across several Australian states. It will also provide broader opportunities for all members of the community to come, try and play the game of Rugby League.”
The Come, Try & Play Project launch will be held early in 2022.
