Join us for Gippsland ‘Orange Round’ a stand against family violence and men’s violence against women and children and showcasing gender equality in sport.
Many sporting clubs are already doing a lot of great work in creating more inclusive spaces for women and girls and initiatives such as the Orange Round are an excellent means of highlighting some of this work and encouraging other clubs to consider how their environments could be more equitable for all participants.
In 2022 we are inviting all sports clubs across Gippsland to be a part of the Orange Round campaign which will take place between the 25th & 26th of June 2022.
