In 2012/13 Sport Wales awarded a Development Grant of £50,000 to establish a Ball Sport Hall at the Cardiff City House of Sport Ltd based in Leckwith, Cardiff.
The House of Sport although linked to Cardiff City FC, is intended to engage with several sports not just football to also include basketball, Futsal, Netball, Korfball, wheelchair rugby and wheelchair basketball to name a few. The project overall has been a huge success with increased participation in all sports catered for and a particular increase in basketball and women’s football. The project also has good engagement with BME groups and continues to go from strength to strength.
Cardiff City House of Sport Ltd presented a considered and inclusive approach to the project which allowed greater participation in a range of sports whilst also engaging groups from the community who previously would not have had the opportunity to use facilities such as this.
The House of Sport Ltd has clearly demonstrated its ability to plan, produce and deliver on proposed project outcomes and outputs.
