Cowbridge Tennis are delighted to announce our success in being awarded a grant of £41,653 by Sport Wales’ Be Active Wales Fund to help build a new floodlit tennis court.
Thanks to the Welsh Government and repurposed money from the National Lottery, the Be Active Wales Fund enables clubs to apply for grants to Protect or Prepare during the pandemic and Progress into the future.
Some clubs need the funding to help them stay afloat, while other clubs are using the money to make any adaptations required to ensure their activities are safe once they are given the green light by Welsh Government for their sport to restart. Others are ready to move forward and progress with a project which will enable more people to enjoy sport as our members do.
Ian Duggan said: “This funding will make a massive difference for our club. It will help us develop some new projects we’ve had to pause due to the pandemic. We hope to use it to ensure our club can be more sustainable & tackle inequalities in our community which will no doubt attract more people to reap the benefits of sport our existing members already enjoy.”
