National news

All Squash Clubs in Wales,

Further to the recent Government issued mandate for venues including gyms, leisure centres, clubs etc to close from Friday 20th March.
The Welsh Government and Sport Wales have now announced an extensive package of financial support to minimise the financial distress for community sport in Wales.

Emergency Funding of £400,000 for community sport in Wales

Welsh Government has confirmed they are making £200,000 available to provide support to not-for-profit sports clubs. This is being match-funded with £200,000 from Sport Wales.
Sport Wales aims to deliver immediate funds to clubs who are already facing significant challenges after a difficult few weeks and who are likely to need immediate financial support over the next 12 weeks, if they are to remain an important part of their communities.
Each eligible club will be able to apply for a maximum of £5000.
