- About the club

We were first established in 1851 and provide sporting and leisure opportunities for you, your family and friends, whatever your age, interest or ability. Cricket, Tennis, Netball, Squash, Racketball and Gym members all share our club house, where they can enjoy a drink with friends and relax in a comfortable environment.

World class champions have started at our club but the majority of our members join to keep healthy, improve fitness, have fun and compete in their choice of sport.

- The impact of the club in the local community

Coventry & North Warwickshire Sports Club plays an important part in the community. Today the club has Charitable Status (No.1171594) and exists to provide recreation, health and well-being opportunities for local people. Our sports actively encourage community participation from Juniors to Seniors and we offer facilities which are used by clubs such as Coventry University. During COVID we have also supported the vaccination efforts being one of the key vaccinations centres in Coventry.

- The effects of COVID 19 on the club

Like many sporting clubs we have suffered during COVID being closed during the lockdown which has impacted our membership and income. The survival of the club is hanging in the balance and with your help, we can ensure the life of the club for another 170 years.

- How the money you raise will help

With your help and with matched funding from Sport England we aim to survive post COVID, improve the club facilities for the community and make our facilities more accessible to the community including open up our facilities to local children especially those from underprivileged backgrounds. 

- The projects you are funding:-

- Improving the Changing Rooms for all sections.

- Repairing the hard Tennis Courts and re-painting them.

- Improving the Gym, Sauna & Steam room area and facilities

- Evaluating the potential to create a multipurpose court for more Netball.

Improving the Changing Rooms for all sections

1620324246_changing_room.pngSafety and offering changing rooms which are welcoming, inclusive to all backgrounds and well equipped is key in ensuring our club can recruit and retain members. We want to reach all areas of the community and be as inclusive as possible. Many of our changing rooms are now dated and this funding will help bring them up to an acceptable standard.

Repairing the hard Tennis Courts and re-painting them.

1620323467_image_3.jpegWe want to offer safe and accessible facilities to our community and whilst we work hard to maintain our Tennis courts, the hard courts are now in need of repair and repainting to ensure they continue to offer excellent playing conditions which are attractive to existing and new members.

Improving the Gym, Sauna & Steam room area and facilities

1620325524_gym_repair.pngWe recognise that the Sauna & Steam room offers health benefits to many of our members and following a review our Sauna is not in a fit working state. Our aim is to offer an environment which can be enjoyed by all sections of the community as part of a health, sport and leisure offering. We have already improved the gym area and flooring but this funding  will allow us to repair / replace our equipment and improve the overall ambiance of the area.

Evaluating the potential to create a multipurpose court for more Netball.

We are always looking to recruit new players and we have seen a rise in our members. As an area of growth within the Coventry & North Warwickshire Sports Club we now need more than just the 1 netball court. This funding will evaluating the potential to create a multipurpose court for more Netball.

Surviving post COVID

1620325211_repair_work.pngAfter 170 years, and given the financial implications of COVID this funding will also help us survive. We are all working hard to improve and maintain our facilities and clubhouse so we can offer as many sporting events and activities as possible. As you can see the improvements are really required.

1618337378_1618337377771.pngDave O’Leary is a former ATP ranked player who represented Great Britain as a junior. He says “I am a tennis coach now, it’s a fantastic club with a great atmosphere and I lived over the road as a kid and it was the great tennis centre and fun atmosphere that got me involved in tennis”

1618337114_1618337114411.pngIan Bell, England cricket legend and former Coventry cricketer said ‘I started my cricket career at Coventry and North Warwickshire when I was 10 years old. I had some great times there as I grew up. I hope you will help the club to survive after the Covid Pandemic.’

1618337455_1618337454310.pngSteve Ogrizovic, Coventry City's legendary goalkeeper is very happy to support our Crowdfunding campaign. He said, 'I had over 20 fantastic years playing cricket for the club. I still go and watch regularly and have many great friends there. Your support is now needed more than ever, so please donate and help the club to survive in its hour of need.'

1618935385_img_2352.pngDave Long, Coventry Olympian. I spent many happy hours as a little kid watching Cricket at the club progressing to using the evening entertainment facilities (as a big kid!). My strangest engagement with C&NW was during my time as an international athlete. I began my recoveries from stress fractures by running multiple laps of the Cricket Outfield as road surfaces were too hard to train on and any other grass too uneven and lumpy!
