2019 Club Funding Opportunities

Surrey Championship & Surrey County Cricket Club Funding

The Championship committee along with Surrey CCC will determine whether to approve the grant, upon application. Grants, upon approval, will be paid immediately to qualifying schemes within Clubs.

All grant applications should be sent by email to Mark Babb.using the attached Excel outline form.

When applying for a grant, Clubs should take into consideration that the singular aim is to Increase Participation in Surrey Cricket.

Increasing participation can take a variety of broad forms, and the following ideas may be useful in determining whether your grant application will be successful.

  • Coaching Programmes for additional age groups.
  • Use of innovative approaches to recruit adult players into clubs (e.g. social media, paid advertising)
  • Revenue costs associated with training coaches, officials and grounds people to support the delivery of increased numbers
  • Marketing and Promotional costs to support player recruitment at all levels (e.g. flyers, banners etc)
  • Costs associated with the club running an open day or another style of an event aimed at recruiting new members from their local communities
  • Enhancing the experience of players – coaching aids, equipment, etc
  • Funds that will contribute to an Inclusive Environment – the establishment of Girls Cricket, Women’s cricket, Disability Cricket.
  • Entering a new team in the Championship for 2019 – but not at the expense of another league – i.e. a net increase of players.

Clubs should consider their own financial contribution to the application, and indicate this in the application

Clubs should actively seek community participation towards the projects applied for, and demonstrate this in the application.

Please note that there is no limit on the amount of grant that can be applied for, but the Championship Committee and Surrey CCC will want to see a fair distribution of funds across Championship Clubs.
