Equipment – for example, balls, bibs, tennis racquets (NOT match balls)
Marketing material – for example, flyers, social media marketing, pull ups/pop ups
Facility Hire – in addition to sessions the club/organisation already run
Volunteer Expenses – for example, travel (this does not include coaching fees)
Incentives – for example, attend 3 sessions receive a t-shirt/water bottle 
In order to be eligible to apply, clubs/ organisations must meet the funding criteria which can be found HERE


Projects must have a specific focus on engaging new, inactive (those doing less than 30 minutes per week) participants. Although applications are welcome from all clubs/organisations priority will be given to the focus groups above.
