Penryn Rugby Football Club has secured Olympic legacy funding from Sport England’s Inspired Facilities fund.

It will receive £50,000 of National Lottery funding towards a new multi purpose building with a Learning Zone at it's heart to be constructed at the Memorial Ground.

Features of the architect-designed project will include large flexible classroom space, offices for the senior, youth and ladies squads, a club shop, coaching library, a new covered turnstile entrance, community space and a creche.

Sport England today revealed that more than 1,000 local sports projects across the country have now received National Lottery funding through Inspired Facilities, which is part of the £150 million Places People Play legacy programme. Every sports facility that receives funding will carry the London 2012 Inspire mark – celebrating the link to the Games.
