Welcome Back!

As we commence the 2021-2022 season with renewed hope and expectations, we wanted to take the opportunity to highlight the supports available to our club committees and other volunteers.

The Clubs and Community team are focused on supporting our clubs to regrow and retain their members, whilst also becoming more resilient and sustainable for the future.

As always we welcome your feedback, ideas and suggestions for programmes or supports that you feel would benefit your club.
