Boxing and skiing are among the sports to benefit from the third round of Sport England’s Improvement Fund, which focuses on offering young people better facilities.

In total, 36 projects will share £12.5m worth of grants. Beneficiaries include the OnSide Youth Zones, which has been awarded the maximum amount of £500,000 to build the Wolverhampton Youth Zone, a large multi-sport facility.

The Wolverhampton site will include a 3G outdoor pitch, four-court indoor sports hall, climbing wall, dance studio, martial arts/boxing room and a fully equipped gym.

Funding has also been earmarked for the Empire Amateur Boxing Club (£360,000) and Ski Rosendale Social Enterprise in Lancashire (£375,000).

Ski Rosendale will use the funding to upgrade its ski and snowboard facilities, allowing it to meet growing demand – created by Team GB’s success at this year’s Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.

Sport England Property Director, Charles Johnston, said: “We know people have a better experience of sport when they have good facilities in which to play.

“This is why we’re investing in these 36 projects to improve their facilities so they are more appealing young people, and help us to get them developing a lifelong sporting habit.”
