AQUATIC CLUB DEVELOPMENT FUND
Why we are launching the fund
As aquatics continues its post-pandemic recovery, the energy and cost of living crises provide new challenges across Wales and the UK. Many pools are experiencing energy price rises of over 300% and these increased costs are often passed on to consumers. Swim Wales is launching this fund to help clubs build a foundation on which they can thrive in the future.
What is the fund?
The fund will provide financial support to the sum of £250-£2,500 for a range of club projects. A contribution of 10% of the overall project cost will be required from clubs.
Applications are open from Saturday 21st October until the deadline on Sunday 3rd December and are limited to one per club.
Swim Wales will release 90% of their contribution upfront and the final 10% at their discretion (throughout or on completion of the project) based on progress.
The total value of the fund equals £50,000.
