Carmarthenshire Council has distributed more than £21,000 to help sport clubs across the county.
Some 18 clubs have benefited from Community Chest grant funding after applying through the sport and leisure team.
The bulk of the money will be spent on developing junior and youth sections, improving and increasing the level of coaches, as well as training courses including first aid, umpiring and refereeing.
Equipment such as mats, training bibs, balls, tennis nets, posts, first aid kits will also be purchased from the money. Community Chest is funded by Sport Wales and distributed via the council’s sport and leisure section.
