This clue might be a double definition.

'contract' is the first definition.
(as in pursing one's lips)

'sporting prize' is the second definition.

(Other definitions for purse that I've seen before include "Prize money - prepare to whistle" , "sometimes with strings attached?" , "Contract orally" , "Winner's prize" , "Pucker (one's lips)" .)
