The country has endured the wettest winter since records began in 1910 and the grassroots game bore the brunt of the disruption with numerous postponements, travel disruptions and training sessions cancelled.
Early indicators suggest that the biggest impact of the bad weather has been on sports such as hockey, rugby and football because of flooded and waterlogged pitches, and water sports where many clubs are on riverbanks or in coastal areas.
Jennie Price, Chief Executive of Sport England, said: “The storms and floods have devastated many sports facilities across England. 

“We want to play our part in helping communities get back to normal, and we will consult both locally and with the affected sports about the best way to achieve that.”
