Every school in England will have the opportunity to establish a community sports club with synthetic turf sports pitch, as part of a new strategy to encourage young people to play sport for life including football, rugby, futsal, basketball, hockey, netball and multi sports.

The move is a key part of a £1 billion, five-year youth and community sport strategy that will deliver on Lord Coe’s 2012 Games bid promise to inspire a generation to get involved in sport. The funding is predominantly from the lottery with £200 million being exchequer funding. The funding will be ideal in renovating all astro turf pitches and upgrading to the latest 3G artificial grass sports surfacing.

“We need a radical change in policy to address the deep-seated problem of people dropping out of sport when they leave school,” said Mr Hunt. “Our bold approach will see money going to organisations that deliver on youth participation, but also withdrawn quickly from those which fail to meet agreed objectives.”
