Apply for BALLS4ALL

Applications for BALLS4ALL opening at 12noon AEDT, 17th March


In partnership with Spartan Sports, we are giving away $1 million worth of product and equipment!

This Giving4GrassrootsTM  grant round, Balls4All,  is the biggest donation of free sporting goods to clubs, schools and organisations in Australian history, with almost 50,000 items available to clubs.

Spartan Sports ambassador Michael Clarke announced the giveaway, which is the biggest in Australian history by a sporting manufacturer.

According to the Australian Sports Commission’s AusPlay report, just two per cent of children are active every day outside of school hours and we want to change this!

“The ball is central to the playing of just about every sport, particularly team sports. It takes one ball to start a game and a strong partnership like this is a great way to create real change and have real impact in our communities,” Clarke said.

“The opportunities for healthy sports activity are endless but, sadly, we are losing our way. That is why Spartan is taking action, together with the Sports Foundation, to fix this problem and promote more lively participation and healthier lifestyles. Let’s get our local communities active again.”

So together, we are providing the biggest donation of sporting goods in Australian history and are calling on all sporting clubs to apply now!

Together with Spartan Sports, we will be providing grants of balls for rugby league, rugby union and football, plus netballs, basketballs and cricket balls to sports groups and school teams all over Australia.

Tips for your BALLS4ALL application

There is a simple application process on our website for Balls4All. You will be asked some questions to determine whether or not your club is eligible to apply, such as if you have previously received a G4G grant, if you are a non-profit club, do you have an ABN and how much revenue your club obtained in the last two financial years.

To make sure filling out your application process is as smooth as possible, you should have the following ready:

  • Have an understanding of what equipment you will apply for by reviewing our available equipment list below
  • Your organisation’s ABN  and Incorporation Number
  • The annual revenue for the last financial year
  • Up to 300 words about your club
