The club provides a safe, family friendly environment where players, both junior and senior are encouraged to participate in activities both on and off the field.

The sporting club is the hive of activity in any small rural town, and Nhill is no different. Nhill and District Sporting Club prides itself on its hard work ethic, illustrated in the successful 2013 Wimmera Football League and Netball Association Grand Final, held at Davis Park on September 21 2013. This event saw over 5,000 spectators transcend on Davis Park, producing an economic impact of $70,000 to the club and indirect benefits to the town of Nhill and surrounding area.
