About Oadby & Wigston Borough Council Sports Facilities Fund

The fund is open to organisations that meet the necessary qualifying criteria of providing sports equipment or facilities for the delivery of community sport and physical activity. It doesn't have to be a traditional space – or a traditional sport. The programme aims to provide support to improve local community sport infrastructure which will support greater community participation in sport and/or offer safer and more inclusive community sporting hubs.
