Looking ahead to July 14, the United International Taekwondo Federation’s (ITF) Open Victorian Championships will take centre stage at Caroline Springs Leisure centre. The competition will see a plethora of the state’s best taekwondo athletes streamed LIVE.
Speaking about the newest events being added into the Grant Program, Anytime Fitness Local Area Marketing representative Fred Drew said he was excited to help showcase such wonderful community events.
“We love having the ability to support our local communities, and thanks to my Sport Live the opportunity is there to do just that!” He said.
“To have a game of footy through the VAFA and a taekwondo competition through the ITF, that are both supporting active participation within their local areas is pleasing to see.
“These events abide by our values in positively supporting healthy lifestyles, and we look forward to involving the associated Victorian communities in our ambition.”
Old Scotch Football Club General Manager Peter Simpson, is very excited for the Club and the surrounding suburbs of Camberwell, within the Boroondara municipality.
