The Badminton Club received $6,000 in funding.

What do badminton shuttlecocks, drones, cultural costumes, ultimate frisbee discs, musical equipment, poker chips and a model of the Eiffel Tower have in common?

They’ll all be bought by various student clubs and societies after the University awarded nearly $300,000 in its latest funding round.

Each year, the Club Support Committee is impressed by the wide range of opportunities clubs and societies offer to their members and the general student population, both on-campus and off.

Once again the wide range of funding applications highlight the diverse range of clubs the University supports – from weekly vegan meals to free wakeboarding sessions, ski trips to music performances and everything in between.

But it isn't all fun and games - funding was also granted to cover costs including first aid training, insurance, competition registration fees, uniforms, accounting software and much, much more.

The second round of funding will occur in Semester Two.
