The Return to Play Fund will support groups, clubs and organisations who have been impacted by restrictions brought in to tackle the disease.


Grants are from £300 - £10,000 to help community clubs become Covid 19 secure and could cover things like minor amendments to facilities, additional sports equipment, signage, sanitation and training courses.



There’s also a Return to Play: Community Asset Fund with awards available between £10k-£50k with a total of £5m available. This can cover bigger ticket items like ventilation or creating additional space to adhere to social distancing guidelines.


Clubs should read through the full guidance for eligibility criteria and what will/won’t be funded,.This particular funding is aimed at investing in organisations who have been impacted directly by the pandemic.


Steve Archer, the Yorkshire Cricket Board's Head of West Region, is happy to support/advise wherever required, as you’ll see there is a focus on specific groups but if you’ve any questions regards eligibility Iclubs are recommended to call Sport England direct to discuss.
