Spartan Sports joins forces with Australian Sports Foundation
April 20, 2016

The Australian Sports Foundation has announced that leading international sports goods supplier, Spartan Sports, will sponsor its nationwide Giving4Grassroots™ (G4G™) grants program.

G4G™ funds initiatives and programs aimed at increasing participation in grassroots and community sport throughout Australia. Since its inception in 2014, G4G™ has provided almost$300,000 in grants to 60 sports clubs, benefitting more than18,000 participants.

Spartan Sports will supply sporting and training equipment to successful G4G™ grant applicants across cricket, rugby league, rugby union, football, netball, basketball and volleyball.

Australian Sports Foundation Chief Executive, Patrick Walker, thanked Spartan Sports for its partnership saying more children will experience the personal enjoyment, positive health and social benefits sport provides to Australian communities.

Walker stated “the best way we as a country can help overcome obesity and inactivity among young Australian is by providing new sports and training equipment to attract them to playing sport, and for sports participation to become an enjoyable and healthy recreation.

“Local sports communities are at the heart of our G4G™ program, and our values are perfectly aligned with those of Spartan Sports.”.

Spartan Sports Managing Director, Kunal Sharma, said his company was delighted to be able to assist grassroots sport in Australia via the Foundation’s G4G™ program.

Sharma added “Spartan Sports is passionate about sport whether it is played competitively or for leisure,” he said. “Our focus is supplying sporting goods that contribute to the development of individuals and teams.”

Among Spartan Sports’ ambassadors are Australian cricketers Michael Clarke, Mitchell Johnston and Joe Burns, plus netballer Laura Geitz. They are joined by Indian Test captain MS Dhoni, England ODI skipperEoin Morgan and West Indian greats, Sir Vivian Richards and Chris Gayle.

Applications for the next round of G4G™ grants open on 26th April and close on 10th May.
