The Sport England Small Grants Programme uses lottery funding to make awards of between £300 and £10,000 to not-for-profit organisations, like Wrestling Clubs, to deliver new community projects to either grow or sustain participation in sport or to support talent development. Some Wrestling Clubs have already been successful in obtaining grants from the Small Grants Programme.
