Support for Sports Clubs

We have a strong commitment to supporting sports clubs and organisations throughout the Borough. We want to support those who create opportunities that allow people to participate in sport, physical activity or active leisure in a safe and effective environment.

We can provide support to clubs such as:

  • Club get-togethers to facilitate ongoing contact, partnership and interconnectivity
  • Support with funding/ grant applications
  • Providing a link between Tees Valley Sport and grass roots sports organisations
  • Consultation of strategic documents, e.g. Playing Pitch Strategy, to ensure they are appropriate and representative.
  • Providing regular updates via the Club Hub Facebook page.


Funding and grant opportunities

The Leisure and Sports Development team offers advice and support to sporting organisations who are looking for external financial help. The following funding opportunities are currently available:
