Northampton Sailing Club has been given a £50,000 grant by Sport England to help improve its changing facilities.
Sport England has committed a total of £1.7 million to help improve the facilities at 31 sports clubs in the East Midlands.
A year on from the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics, Sport England has also committed an additional £40 million National Lottery funding to extent the legacy fund until 2017.
Sport England Chair Nick Bitel said: “A year on from the Olympics, it’s inspiring to see how our investment is transforming sporting facilities in hundreds of communities. The great news for sports clubs across the country is that we’re putting an extra £40 million into Inspired Facilities so many more projects will benefit in the coming years.”
Minister for Sport Hugh Robertson said: “This £40 million injection of National Lottery funding will be a huge boost to local sports facilities across the country. Coming a year on from hosting the London 2012 Games it demonstrates our commitment to a tangible and long lasting sports legacy. The Inspired Facilities fund has been a massive success and by extending it to 2017 it will help encourage many more people to get involved in community sport.”
