Nelson Bay Netball Association will upgrade its canteen in time for the 2022 season after receiving a $2000 grant.
The Tomaree Sports Complex-based association was one of 85 from across Australia that was selected to receive funds through the Woolworths' Pick Fresh Play Fresh Grants program.
The association said it will use the grant to purchase new equipment for its canteen, including a bench to prepare more healthier snacks and food options for members.
The Woolworths grants support grassroots clubs and associations across Australia, and are focused on helping young netball players get more healthy, fresh nutrition at training and on match days.
It comes after the association's committee made the the difficult decision to cancel its proposed summer twilight competition to focus on the 2022 season.
A virtual presentation was held through the Nelson Bay Netball Association Facebook page across three days last week with awards for 2021 announced.
