Posted: Wed, 05 Feb 2020 12:13
Clubs and organisations are being invited to apply for Table Tennis England funding to help get more people from minority or underrepresented groups playing table tennis.
The inclusivity grant scheme, now in its second year, sees up to £300 available for projects which work with people from a number of groups.
Particular priority will be given this year to projects which focus on disability and lower socio-economic groups, though applications are also considered for initiatives in other areas, such as women and girls, BAME communities, mental health and LGBT+.
Applications will close on February 28 and projects need to be able to accept their grant by March 31 and start their project by June 2020.
Funding is open to Table Tennis England Premier Clubs and Associate Clubs as well as community groups. It can be used for various costs including coaching qualifications and costs, new equipment to meet participants' needs, and facility hire. Projects must show how they will be sustainable, be run on a not-for-profit basis, and run for at least eight months of the year.
Projects which apply will be expected to show how the project will become sustainable. They must run for at least eight months of the year and be delivered in a community-use venue and be run on a not-for-profit basis.
