Sport England revealed that more than 1,300 local sports projects across the country have now received National Lottery funding through Inspired Facilities, part of its Olympic and Paralympic legacy programme. Camberley Judo Club secured £34,980 for refurbishment works to update the Clubs facilities.
The project will include updating facilities in the Women’s changing rooms and viewing area helping to make it a safer and more comfortable environment for everyone to enjoy Judo in.
To celebrate the award, local people are being invited to try Judo for the first time for FREE throughout August. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
Sport England’s Chair, Nick Bitel, said: “A year on from the Olympics, this National Lottery investment is helping us deliver a lasting sporting legacy”.
“With investment now on offer from our Inspired Facilities Fund until 2017, we look forward to supporting many more sports clubs who play such a vital role in grassroots sport.”
Head Coach, Luke Preston, said: “We are delighted to have secured this investment, the refurbishments are much needed and will allow us to upgrade the facilities to match the high level of Judo athletes we have training at Camberley. We are also looking to increase our participation levels and really engage with the local community, the grant will allow us to provide a safe and comfortable environment for everyone to come and enjoy Judo in!”
Camberley Judo Club is one of well over 300 projects across England receiving lottery investment from the fourth round of the Inspired Facilities fund and one of more than 1,300 to benefit overall.
