We operate two grant schemes for sports development. For details and applications for each scheme, please visit:


Organisations such as schools, pre-school and Parent and Teacher Associations are not eligible to apply, unless they meet the eligibility criteria and can clearly demonstrate how the grant funding would benefit the wider community of Warwick District (for example, be open to all and not for curriculum delivery).

What we won’t fund

The grants will not fund building renovations/works or refurbishments, ground works or resurfacing, refreshments/food, bursaries for individuals.

Play activities are not eligibly for the Sports Development Grant.


For further information about these grants, please contact Manoj Sonecha (Active Communities Officer):
