Friday 9th April saw the Annual Disability Sport Wales Awards taking place, and of course, because of the current situation, these awards were held virtually!
Nominated for the Organisation of the Year Award were SEAS Sailability, a charity dedicated to getting the disabled people of North Wales, their families and carers active and having fun on (and around) the water.
As you can imagine there was a lot of excitement around when the awards evening was upon us, but unfortunately, SEAS weren’t the overall winners on this occasion, pipped by the Welsh Rugby Union (quite illustrious company we’re sure you’ll agree!)

The weekend of the 3rd and 4th of April saw PPSA host their Easter Regatta, a fantastic two day event that saw eager participants back on the water!
They were very much blessed with fantastic sunny weather for both days of the Easter weekend, and the wind developed nicely on Sunday giving everyone a superb first weekend back to the sport after a very long break.
Well done to all the sailors, parents and the PPSA team for their hard work and application of Covid procedures – great work!
We are in the midst of a national crisis for Grassroots sports, and that’s why the WSA have teamed up with Croft Communications to help launch their Grassroots Initiative.
Initially, Croft are opening the scheme up to 200 clubs on a first-come, first-served basis. However, with over 5,500 sports clubs across Wales, there is long-term potential for this investment into Welsh grassroots-level sport to run into £millions.
How it works - 2 simple steps
1. Club players, supporters and members redirect their existing business communications spend to Croft’s cutting-edge telecoms services, increasing business efficiency, productivity and profitability.
2. Croft then immediately inject a % of the cash back into the club! This could add up to a sizeable donation in the hundreds – or even thousands, every year.
How do clubs get involved?
Visit The Grassroots Initiative for more information or contact Jon Poole, Croft’s Director of Partnerships, at email@example.com / 01920 449201.
Registration is now up and running for a series of Racing Coach Level 2 sessions over the coming months.
