Six clubs named winners of the WSA x Net World Sports competition

Six clubs named winners of the WSA x Net World Sports competition

In early May, six clubs were announced as winners of the Welsh Sports Association’s (WSA) competition with partners Net World Sports.

All of the clubs were awarded vouchers to spend on Net World Sports equipment, with four winning £250, one receiving £500, and the main winner awarded £1000.

One of the winners of a £250 prize was Caernarfon Golf Club. Sion Morgan from the club commented:

“I was notified of this competition by a fellow member, and we thought we’d give it a try. We’re over the moon to have won and we’re looking forward to purchasing some new products to help our club grow!”

Merthyr Town FC also won £250 in the competition, and Jack Hodgkins told the WSA:

“We are absolutely delighted to be chosen as a winner of the competition, as this voucher will now help provide equipment for both our senior and academy set-ups at the club.”

Barry Roberts from Holyhead Hotspur FC, another recipient of £250, stated:

“This prize will go a long way to ensuring we can continue to provide the high-quality coaching we offer to kids from all over the island. Huge thank you to the WSA and Net World Sports.”

The final winner of £250 in the competition was Mynydd Isa FC. James Hollyoak from the club said:

“As a club, we are delighted to be one of the winners.

“We will definitely be using this prize to purchase new training equipment such as footballs ready for the 2024/25 season!”

Drawn as the £500 winner, Maesteg Squash Club will benefit hugely from the prize, as Sally Davies told the WSA:

“Maesteg Squash Club were delighted to win the Net World Sports prize. The money will help us support our thriving junior section as well as provide training resources for our male and female players. It will allow us to purchase additional sports training equipment which would not have been available to us without this money.

“As a sports club based in the valleys of South Wales every financial contribution is very gratefully received and put to good use.”

And the competition’s main winner was North Wales Crusaders Wheelchair Rugby League & Disability Sports Club, who will receive £1000 to spend on Net World Sports Equipment. The club’s Stephen Jones commented:

“When we found out our club had won the WSA x Net World Sports Competition, we were over the moon.

“As a club, we have always had to prioritise our spending on hall hire then essential equipment. What this win has meant to us is that we have been able to go through our ever-growing wish list and buy equipment that, while not essential, is going to have a lasting benefit for the club and our members; things like additional fitness equipment and more coaching aids for our coaches who usually buy their own equipment for sessions.

“We can’t thank the Welsh Sports Association and Net World Sports enough for giving us this opportunity to buy much needed but often ignored equipment.”

The WSA would once again like to thank all of the clubs that engaged with the competition, and congratulate the six that were drawn as winners.

In the coming weeks and months, we will return to see the impact that the prize money has had, so keep an eye out!
