A summary of grants available to clubs in the Making Trax Network   

We know that a lack of funding makes it difficult to kick-start new projects or test out fresh ideas. That is why we:  

  • Offer small grants to clubs in our network  
  • Help clubs identify other sources of funding, and; 
  • Sign-post volunteers towards training needed to boost your club’s fundraising capacity.  

We also work with funding experts who can check funding applications (free) or write bids on behalf of your club (for a fee).  

Here is a summary of grants available via the Making Trax programme  

  • Cycle Speedway Club Grants

Cycle Speedway Clubs are invited to apply for small grants of £200 to support the delivery of taster sessions, open days, or start-up targeted inclusion projects. 

Grants will be awarded to clubs that meet the grant criteria on a first come-first served basis. Applications are due to close before the end of March 2022.
