Grassroots Sports Champions
Celebrating grassroots sports champions
Does your pub, club or bar sponsor a local football team, provide free food and drink for the cricket side, or host a darts or pool team?
Pubs are providing a lifeline estimated at £40 million a year to for grassroots sport, helping people in the communities to play the sports they love, and which benefit both physical and mental health. That support isn’t just for the big sports like football, cricket, pool and darts, but less commonly played pursuits ranging from netball, bowls and skittles to the little-known Bat & Trap (a distant cousin of cricket).
You can read about some of the pubs who support grassroots sports here:

If you think your pub is a Grassroots Sports Champion, tell us about it by sending a short email about what you do, with a photo, to [email protected] We'll select some of the best stories we receive and publish them on our website - giving you, and the sports teams you support, a bit of recognition.
