Scarborough Table Tennis Club is celebrating after receiving a £250 donation from the MARS Refuel Drink Fund.

The MARS Refuel Drink Fund, which runs until September 30 2012, has one Gold (£1000), four Silver (£500) and eight Bronze (£250) awards to donate each month so your club could benefit from a similar donation if you apply at

Carole Harrington, Scarborough TTC secretary, says: “There are very little indoor sports clubs in Scarborough so we would like to welcome more people to our club. To enable us to do this, we need to renew essential things such as bats, balls and nets.

“With this donation from the MARS Refuel Drink Fund we can purchase the equipment we need to expand the club.”

But with the incredible summer of sport that lies ahead, there should be plenty to motivate people to get active.

The MARS Refuel Drink Fund was set up to help individuals and clubs play their chosen sport for longer. Applicants for support such as equipment, coaching, pitch time and travel expenses can be made online at

The fund is open to residents of, and clubs and organisations based in the UK and Republic of Ireland only. Applicants must be 13 years or over and only one application will be accepted per person, club or organisation.
