a little update...

we placed an order for a new 2 bay nets this week and funded it in part with grants from district council (new homes bonus scheme) and parish council

but the difference maker was a grant from the ecb, it took us years to get access to this support but was worth the wait

my advice to any club in a similar position is to get some matched funding / grants secured as early as possible, put that with any of your own fundraising and see how far you can stretch yourself with an interest free ecb loan - when you've got that funding pot in place the ecb and other funders are a hell of a lot more likely to support your project by topping up and matching your contribution.
