Coaching Bursary

Please note, the East Herts Clubs bursary is currently paused.

As part of our initiative to support the development of local sports clubs across East Hertfordshire, we are offering club and organisations the opportunity to apply for a grant to support the development of essential qualifications to maintain minimum standards as a coach/Club. The aim is to increase the number of quality coaches, officials and volunteers working within clubs to enhance and improve their performance.

The first 2020 Coaching Bursary was awarded to 3 winners:

Bishops Stortford Lawn Tennis Club is a superb tennis facility with a strong club culture. Testament to that is the involvement of juniors in helping to coach complete beginners.
