Grants of up to £15,000 are available to sports clubs, education establishments and others for the repair of storm-damaged community sports facilities such as clubhouses, courts and pitches, etc. The funding which is being made available through Sports England Storm Relief Fund could be used to repair storm-damaged building and roofs, grass and artificial pitches, decontaminate flooded clubhouses, replace damaged electrical systems or clear blocked drains. The funding could also pay for other items needed such as the hire of skips, pressure hoses or tarpaulins to secure exposed buildings. Any funding for projects that include football will need to be part of a multi-sport offering. Organisations should receive a decision within ten working days.
