Sport England Funding available to support Clubs affected by Storm Damage

Storm-damaged facilities could soon be back up and running thanks to Sport England's new Storm Relief Fund.

Organisations with facilities - such as clubhouses, courts and pitches - affected by the recent storms can now apply for grants of up to £15,000 after Sport England added an emergency storm damage option to their Queen's Platinum Jubilee Activity Fund.

Whilst the effects of the recent storms and the subsequent flood damage are still being assessed, they want to ensure community sports facilities aren't forgotten and are ready to reopen as soon as possible.

The money could be used to repair storm-damaged buildings and roofs, grass and artificial pitches, decontaminate flooded clubhouses, replace damaged electrical systems or clear blocked drains.

Other items needed may include the hire of skips, pressure hoses or tarpaulins to secure exposed buildings (for use only when safe to do so).
