Revival of grass roots basketball
Organiser: Lincolnshire Wildcats Basketball Club
Sponsor: Corsair Environmental Consultants, Aybara web design, Intuitive UK
Sportsmatch award: £10,000
Basketball for youngsters in Lincolnshire has practically died out in the past few years but the enthusiasm of the owner of Corsair, who used to play in his youth, aims to create a schools taster programme leading to competitions at a central venue and a number of leagues. Children between 8-16 will be the target who will form the basis of a network of new clubs and future coaches as the sport grows again county-wide.
