Sport England is to invest £5m in repairing hundreds of sport pitches and facilities damaged by the recent flooding and adverse weather conditions.

Grants of up to £2,000 for emergency repairs will be made available to sports clubs, local authorities and other community organisations and will cover restorations made to playing pitches, water sports centres, pavilions, changing rooms and floodlights.

A spokesperson for Sport England said the aim will be to deliver help to clubs urgently so grants will be awarded within three weeks.

Organisations that think they may need help to restore sports facilities are being asked to provide details about the extent of the damage at www.sportengland.org/floodfund . Sport England will then advise whether they are eligible for funding and how to apply.

Those with more extensive damage which will take longer to repair will be invited to apply to the Fund when it opens on 24 March.
