IMPORTANT UPDATE: Due to the current pandemic our community timetable is not currently running. We will update this page with further details as soon as we are in a position to recommence the timetable. Thank you.

As a not for profit organisation we aim to deliver sporting activities and health programmes of the highest quality to all. We are focused on promoting our facilities and sport and leisure to families and individuals of all ages and backgrounds.

We operate a socially-inclusive approach to ensure equality of opportunity for all and we openly value diversity so that everyone can enjoy the benefits of participating in sports and leisure activities.

Members of our team have recently taken a Walking for Health Walk Leaders course and will soon be setting up some free walks for people in the community. In addition to this our team have also both recently qualified as Walking Netball Coaches!

Walking Netball is a slower version of the game; it is netball, but at a walking pace. The game has been designed so that anyone can play it regardless of age or fitness level. If you know anyone that maybe interested then please let them know so they can come and try it out, There will also be tea & biscuits afterwards.
