An £8,000 grant has been awarded to Bracknell Rugby Club to open the sport up to more fans.
The money, given by Bracknell Forest Council, will be used to make the ground at Lily Hill Park, Lily Hill Road, more accessible for disabled users.
A new disabled toilet will be built on the first floor as well as a wider path and improvements will be made inside the club house and around the pitch to make them suitable for wheelchair users.
Bracknell rugby football club chairman Ian Hallam said: "This is great news and a really positive start to 2013 for us.
"The club is in the middle of a strategic drive to improve facilities at Lily Hill Park for players and spectators alike.
"This project is a vital part of that process and the club's ongoing efforts to be as inclusive and as active within the community as we can be."
