Athlete Development Fund

Physical disABILITY Sports Tasmania was established to provide Tasmanians with physical disability the opportunity to participate in sport at a social, state, national or international level. The Athlete Development Fund was established to support these athletes with direct financial support. Patrick Best (shown racing above) is one such athlete. “The last few years that I’ve raced it was because of the grant, so I’m very grateful and thankful that it’s there.”
