… 4th application period now open
ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Which regional clubs will join the 23 clubs which have already gotten development grants from the WICB and Digicel? Clubs in ten countries have secured grants of up to US$5 000 to assist with a wide variety of developmental needs including training programmes for young cricketers, refurbishing of facilities, acquisition of mowers and pitch covers and building of sightscreens and all-weather batting nets.
In the latest round of grants, Kensington Cricket Club in Jamaica, the home club of former West Indies batsman and new WIPA president Wavell Hinds, was one of seven clubs which received grants. Kensington CC will use the US$5 000 grant to assist with the renovation of their clubhouse and gym.
More clubs stand to benefit from this widely acclaimed WICB and Digicel partnership programme. The fourth round of WICB Digicel Grassroots Grant application period is now open to all clubs across the region.
Cricket clubs and clusters across the region can apply to the West Indies Cricket Board for assistant grants in three main areas:
1. Infrastructure development
2. Strengthening of training programmes
3. Procurement of gear and equipment
The deadline for the second round of applications is July 30, 2012.
