About Inspired Facilities –
Sport England has launched a £50million programme to refurbish and improve up to 1000 community sports clubs.
The Inspired Facilities fund is part of the Places People Play legacy programme that is bringing the magic of a home Olympic and Paralympic Games into communities across the country.
Investment will be available to breathe new life into tired facilities that can be unattractive to sports participants, expensive to run and difficult to maintain, putting these clubs right back at the heart of their local communities. There will also be money available to convert existing buildings into venues that are suitable for grassroots sport.
Typical investments might be:
• A sprung floor that converts an unused hall into a local multi-sport facility
• New changing rooms, so away teams no longer need to change in the car park
• New floodlights that mean a facility can be used for many more hours of the day.
