Table tennis clubs can bid for a slice of a £1 million fund launched recently by Team GB in partnership with leading UK housebuilder Persimmon Homes.

The Building Futures scheme is being delivered through the Persimmon Charitable Foundation and is aimed at community projects for under-18s and targeted at grassroots sports groups, community groups dealing with physical and mental health issues and awareness, as well as arts and education projects.

A total of 128 grants of £1,000 will be awarded at local level every year for three years to improve facilities and the delivery of vital grassroots community projects.

Three initiatives – one in sport, one in education and one in health – will go on to win £100,000 each through a national award scheme voted on by the public.

There will also be a £50,000 second prize and a £20,000 third prize, while a further 87 shortlisted projects will each receive £5,000.
