On your marks... and go!

Through Lotterywest’s statutory support to the Department of Sport and Recreation, $5,088,390 was allocated to the Western Australian Institute of Sport (WAIS) last financial year to help Western Australia’s peak high performance athletes.

“The ongoing support provided to WAIS through Lotterywest continues to help WA athletes achieve success on the world sporting stage,” says Steve Lawrence, Director of WAIS.

The world-class facilities at WAIS’s newly completed High Performance Service Centre in Mt Claremont have helped support over 30 athletes onto the Australian Olympic Team. They also supported more than 10 WA athletes onto the Australian Paralympic Team in Brazil.       

What does my money support in WA?

Every time you play Lotterywest games, you’re helping community organisations across the State provide services, support and inspiration to people all over Western Australia. Last financial year alone, we were able to contribute $260 million to the WA community. So why not pick up a ticket today and keep WA winning?
