Steve turned our dream of building a third court and installing floodlights into reality by helping us win GBP 76,000 of funding for the project within 12 months of first meeting us. He helped identify promising grant awarding bodies and then helped us write compelling grant applications, with a 100% success rate. Thank you, Steve!

Steve Goswell has helped us identify and apply for both capital and revenue funding for our Club. To date we have been successful with three out of four of our grant applications. For two of our applications we were working to very tight deadlines, and Steve worked tirelessly to ensure the applications went in on time!! We are very grateful for his help!
Tennis Section Manager
The setting up of our group in 2010 was orchestrated by Steve Goswell and with his help we have obtained two Sportsmatch and one Small Grant. The Sportsmatch grant was to match funding from our local sponsors (this funding stream has now closed). These three grants have enabled us to offer free coaching activities to nearly 2,000 residents
of Cambridgeshire, provide equipment to Clubs and pay for coach training sessions for four Tennis coaches. In addition, in 2014, Sport England has funded two large Inspired Facilities grants for facility grants in the County. Steve has helped both Clubs in this process. I highly recommend any Tennis Club to contact Steve if it wishes to raise funds for Tennis.

worked with Steve and Funding4Tennis for 7 years. During this time he has found funding to provide tennis / multisports coaches for a number of
groups I have been involved with including schools, charities and community interest groups. Steve's wealth of knowledge and contacts in this area
are second to none and his professionalism and reliability make him a pleasure to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending

Steve helped us
to obtain a 14,000 grant to resurface two of our courts and further monies to offer free coaching to Juniors. With his support we hope to get further
funding for floodlights in 2015.
'Thanks to the guidance and experience from Steve Goswell in preparing our application we were able to obtain a grant to fit out the shell of our clubhouse which included toilet and kitchen facilities and somewhere for members
and friends to meet in comfort. This has been a great benefit in helping to attract new members.'

Thanks to Steve we were able to obtian grants of 42,000 in 2014 to construct a new floodlit Court and purchase a new Clubroom.
I would like to say how grateful we have been for all the help we have had from Cambs LTA and from Steve Goswell who has always responded so quickly to any funding opportunities and is still working hard on our behalf. We would have missed out on a lot of the funding if it had not been for his continued advice and enthusiasm.
