Funding will benefit West Worthing Club

OLYMPIC sporting cheer worth £50,000 has descended on West Worthing Club (WWC).

This London 2012 Legacy Programme’s Inspired Facilities Fund windfall has been awarded to WWC to part-fund important refurbishments.

The Titnore Way tennis, squash and croquet club applied for funding in April to help:

-Refurbish/repair four squash courts.

-Replace old, inefficient central heating system.

-Replace single-glazed windows and doors with double-glazed units.

-Refurbish the men’s changing room.

Sport England made the maximum £50,000 grant in recognition of the club’s work in delivering sport to large numbers of people from Worthing and the surrounding areas.

The demand for this funding was such that only the top 30 per cent of clubs that applied were successful.

To complete all elements of the award, WWC will need to raise additional funds as the projects progress.
