Small Grants Programme returns with awards of up to £15,000
Cricket Clubs can access funding towards a 2G Flicx Pitch (and associated cricket equipment) with the latest round of Sport England funding now open. Not-for-profit organisations are eligible, and the Small Grants Programme will run until the end of June this year, prioritising projects that can make the biggest difference to people that need it most.
Applications can be made for awards of between £300 and £15,000, with multiple applications permitted but organisations can only have awards totalling £15,000 or less in any 12-month period with the application needing to explain who the grant will benefit, how you will deliver those benefits, the need for the project as well as how end users have been involved in its development.
The 2G Flicx Pitch is a great way for clubs to expand their capacity and grow their provision. Our portable, quality surface can be used for matches, training and is supplied with a Flicx Trolley for ease of portability. We have many customers working in partnership with their local community to grow the game and this programme is a great way to fund your clubs growth through the purchase of new equipment and a pitch that can be your vehicle to play in new venues in your community.
Sport England and Flicx share the belief that communities that work together and share resources provide a stronger and more sustainable impact so here are some of the ways that the 2G Flicx Pitch ticks the boxes for clubs looking to apply (feel free to use this wording as part of your application)
- Environmental Sustainability
The 2G Flicx Pitch is a product with environmental sustainability at its core. It is highly durable and is made from recycled materials. The use of this product negates the need to prepare a turf wicket which is heavy in machinery usage (rollers, mowers etc) whilst no water, fertilisers or other chemicals are required. You simply roll the 2G Flicx Pitch out on any flat, firm surface.
- Connects with Communities
The 2G Flicx Pitch is portable so means you can take cricket anywhere and play in new places within your local community. Parks, green spaces can all host cricket which enables new audiences to experience the game. Whether its getting a cricket bat in the hands of young players for the first time, starting a new ladies team or establishing a walking cricket group – the 2G Flicx is an enabler for any cricket project and can transform the standard of cricket possible.
- Provides impact to those who need it most / areas of disadvantage
With the 2G Flicx Pitch you can take sport to new locations and areas of disadvantage. It is suitable for indoor or outdoor cricket, softball, or hardball. Cricket has the power to change lives and for the past 20 years and more, the 2G Flicx Pitch has been opening up opportunities for more people to experience the value of team sports and cricket activity all over the world.
