STOOLBALL ENGLAND wins National Lottery funding

Saturday 9 November 2019, 5.59am

Stoolball England is celebrating after being awarded £7590 of National Lottery funding from Sport England to develop a new coaching workforce.

The grant will allow Stoolball England to train eight new coaching tutors who will develop and promote stoolball to schools, clubs and the wider community across Sussex, Kent, Surrey, Hampshire and beyond.

Building a new coaching workforce will enable Stoolball England to offer coaching courses to stoolball clubs, schools, community groups and accreditation courses to sports and activity deliverers.

Kelvin Speirs, Stoolball England chairman says: “We are so pleased to have been awarded this funding. It’s taken a lot of time and effort to get this programme off the ground and now we call on all coaches and sports leaders to get on board to help take it forward. Stoolball is a unique sport with dedicated players and we can now celebrate that by building a professional coaching workforce. I’d also like to say thank you to everyone who plays the national lottery, we wouldn’t be able to do this without you!”
