What is Cash4Clubs

Cash4Clubs is a sports funding scheme, giving clubs a unique chance to apply for grants to improve facilities, buy new equipment, gain qualifications and invest in the sustainability of their organisation.

The Cash 4 Clubs scheme has given out sports grants to many deserving recipients and is committed to funding even more sports clubs in the future. With awards of £500, £750, £1000 and £10,000 available, Cash 4 Clubs gives away real money that can help your club.

How is Cash4Clubs funded?

The Cash 4 Clubs scheme is funded by Paddy Power Betfair and is supported by SportsAid, the charity for sports people.

Paddy Power Betfair and SportsAid have worked in partnership for ten years and both organisations understand the importance of community sport in promoting an active lifestyle and stimulating local pride.

It's always a great time to be involved in sport and Cash 4 Clubs can play an important role in helping clubs to sustain and develop themselves.

Can you apply?

Can I apply for funding?

Any sports club can apply as long as they are registered with their sports National Governing Body or local authority.

Funding is given to clubs on a discretionary basis, with a wide range of applications considered.  Whether it’s an underwater camera for monitoring swimming technique, the re-surfacing of a tennis court, new kit for your rugby or netball team or extra training for your coaches, there is a very open policy to what we will consider.

How do you choose who is successful?

How are winners chosen?

Grants are chosen once a year by a diverse judging panel, who will consider funding based on many things including the quality and creativity of the application, the need for funding and the core aims of the club.

Making your application pop by using a video to show off your club and its members is a great idea to stand out from the crowd.  You can either upload a video with your application or attach a video you have uploaded to Vimeo or YouTube.

How much can I apply for?

Grants are available for £500,£750 and £1000. 

However this year, to mark our 10th birthday, we are giving one special club £10,000. 



What could your club do with £10,000? 

This year we're looking for an extraordinary club that wants to do extraordinary things.  The winner of this grant will think big and will be creative with their video or written application.
