We have partnered with the charity StreetGames to help bring doorstep sports to many communities across the UK. We want to support as many young people aged 8-21  as possible to live a healthier and more fulfilling life, whilst trying out new sports, meeting new people and learning useful skills. And it’s FREE!

What is doorstep sport?

Doorstep sport is run by organisations from your local area that are based in the heart of the community, as they know your area best. They’re passionate about giving young people the opportunity to get involved in exciting and varied sporting activities that they may not have been able to experience before.

This project has shown to make a difference on the lives of young people who get involved; it can help them to become physically and mentally healthier, whilst helping to build more connected communities.

Why young people in your area should get involved?

There’s lots of great reasons to get involved. Most importantly, they will get the opportunity to play a variety of exciting sports such as football, boxing, badminton, cricket, basketball, baseball/rounders and many more!

They will also be able to meet new people, make friends, learn new skills, and support the growth of community sport in your local area. At the same time, they will be able to get help and support to improve their mental health and wellbeing, as well as learn some useful financial skills to better manage money.
