Around 400 golfers from various parts of the UK will sail for Normandy, France in October, to take part in SportsAids first ever European Golf Classic. They aim to raise much needed cash for our Sporting Stars of the future, whilst playing golf and generally enjoying themselves.

SportsAid Regions provides financial assistance to young talented sportspeople, who will be members of the Sports England World Class Start Programme. This assists their progress to the potential and performance levels at which National Lottery funding may be available.

Costing just £115 per head, teams of four will enjoy return overnight ferry crossings with cabin accommodation, competition golf on one of the many superb courses in the Deauville area, a commemorative item and superb prizes. Those wishing to play more than one round of golf can do so with golf and overnight hotel accommodation available at special rates. A number of sporting personalities have already indicated their interest in playing.

The sporting potential of young performers has never been fully exploited in England and the partnership between Sport England and SportsAid Regions is looking to put this right in the future. A spokesperson for the SportsAid Regions said: "Our aim is to create more opportunities for the stars of tomorrow, who in more cases will go on to represent their country in European, World and Olympic competition."

Sponsors, Caddymatic, Edinburgh Crystal and Brittany Ferries are already on board. If you would like your company to be involved, or are just interested in participating, ring the Golf Desk at Companies International Ltd on
