Over £14,000 has been handed out to over a dozen sports organisations across the county, the County Council has announced.

Now sports and physical groups in the area are being urged by the council’s Sports Development Team to take advantage of a grant worth up to £1,500 to help contribute to creating thriving clubs which will continue to create opportunities through enterprise and innovation.

Local clubs in the latest round of handouts include Play Montgomeryshire who will receive £1,000 towards instructor fees and equipment, and Welshpool Cricket Club have been awarded £1,230 towards coach education. 

The grants are designed to make a difference to sport and physical activity locally and are available through the Sportlot Community Chest, the Sports Council for Wales National Lottery funded grant aid scheme.

Cllr Rachel Powell, Cabinet Member for Sports Development, said: “I’m delighted that we have been able to award these grants, which will help them thrive and make a difference to sport and physical activity in their area.

“With £90,000 available for this financial year, I’m urging organisations to submit applications so they don’t miss out on this grant funding.”

The next deadline for applications is Thursday, 19 April. For further information contact the council’s Sport Development Team on 01686 614060 or email

Application forms can be downloaded from the Sport Wales website
