Funding & Grant Support

Funding can give clubs the opportunity to run a project to attract new members, organise an open day, purchase new equipment, improve their facilities, train coaches & volunteers or promote the club more within the local community. 

There are a number of funding opportunities available to sports clubs that can be used to help develop the club.  It is important to note that any club / accredited centre applying for funding must have been affiliated to British Water Ski & Wakeboard and met all the requirements for at least one year in order to be eligible.
