The Wilf Paish Bursaries
The Wilf Paish Athletics Bursaries Background
The Wilf Paish Athletics Bursaries
In January 2011, Leeds Metropolitan University celebrated the life of one of athletics’ best known coaches Wilf Paish by setting up a scholarship and bursary programme in his memory. Yorkshire-based Wilf, who sadly passed away at the start of 2010, was coach of javelin aces Tessa Sanderson and Mick Hill and trained more than 100 athletes who became Olympians.
The Wilf Paish Athletics Bursaries were launched to support talented athletes in need of financial support to help them with training costs so that they may realise their full potential. This year we have four bursaries, each of £500, to award talented track and field athletes studying at Leeds Met.

How will it help you?
