Local sports clubs benefit from Olympic legacy

On the day the Olympic torch came to Tunbridge Wells, Greg presented cheques to four sports clubs in the Tunbridge Wells constituency on behalf of Sport England as part of the Olympic legacy fund.

Greg said: "It's great that so many local projects are going to benefit from this funding and I'm doubly pleased that four are within my own constituency. To have such fantastic sporting facilities in the local area is going to be a real boon. And there is another £10million available which is going to provide a great Olympic legacy for local sports clubs so I would encourage everyone to apply."

Mascalls School secured £87,500 of National Lottery funding to upgrade its dilapidated tennis courts so netball, tennis and basketball will be on offer to the local community

Horsmonden Sports Club was awarded £44,610 of National Lottery funding to renovate the existing changing facilities for the football and cricket clubs that use the club.

Cricketers at Matfield are to benefit from a National Lottery award of £50,000 to Brenchley Parish Council. The award will contribute to a total project cost of £203,000 to replace the club's pavilion that was destroyed by fire in 2011.

Paddock Wood Athletics Club has been awarded £50,000 through Inspired Facilities to be used to build a 2/4/6 lane training track on land.
