Are you new to Subiaco or wondering what physical activity to get your children involved in? Why not find a sport or join a club. Belonging to a sports team has more than just physical and health benefits, it provides opportunities to make friends, try something new and above all, have fun.

Fair Game Equipment Strategy
The City of Subiaco has partnered with Fair Game WA to assist in the recycling of second hand sports equipment to be donated to WA communities in need.
Fair Game is a WA health and community development not-for-profit organisation that recycles donated sports equipment from schools, community sporting groups and individuals, and redistributes it to communities in need. To aid in the collection of sporting equipment donations, Fair Game has placed blue donation bins in well-used community centres.
The City of Subiaco has a blue Fair Game donation bin at Lords Recreation Centre in the reception area. If you or your club would like to donate some second hand sporting equipment, please feel free to give Lords a visit and drop it inside the blue bin. For more information about Fair Game, please refer to the brochure or visit their website.
Sporting club recognition grants
The City of Subiaco supports sport and recreation club projects and initiatives that foster a strong sense of belonging to the community by celebrating the city’s rich culture and traditions – past, present and future – through the club recognition grants program. Club recognition grants can be made available to clubs celebrating a particular milestone or achievement (e.g. seventy-fifth anniversary, ten-year premiership reunion) and be up to an amount of $500.
Is your club or organisation struggling to find volunteers to fill committee positions or just help out around the place? The City of Subiaco’s volunteering service has a dual role serving both the needs of volunteers and not-for-profit agencies. As a matchmaker the hub matches volunteers with the agencies that need them.
