Answered by Cabinet Secretary for Culture and Social Justice | Answered on 12/06/2024

The Welsh Government provides funding to Sport Wales which in turn is used to support NGBs, sports organisations and individual clubs via a range of grant schemes and initiatives, including support for participation campaigns.

There are currently two clubs affiliated to Welsh Athletics based close to your constituency offering track and field training; Colwyn Bay Athletics Club, who train at Eirias Park, and Menai Track and Field who train at the Bangor University track in Treborth. Both have received funding in recent years from Sport Wales to improve facilities, for coach development and to support club progression and sustainability.
