Directory to help find York’s community sports clubs

Published Friday, 1st December 2017

As part of work to increase levels of physical activity across the city, City of York Council has produced a directory of York’s community sports clubs.

The directory includes information and contact details for 115 voluntary sports clubs in the city offering a range of sporting and physical activity opportunities from angling to walking.

There is something for everyone with activities for all ages and abilities seven days a week, all-year round.

5,000 copies have been printed and are being distributed to schools, libraries and community centres across the city. The guide is also available to view online at www.york.gov.uk/communitysportsclubs.

Councillor Ann Reid, interim executive member for leisure, culture and tourism said: “Clubs across the city do great work providing opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to both become and remain active. This guide looks to help people find their nearest club so that they can get involved.

“Hopefully this guide will help to increase participation across York so more people are physically active, helping them to live healthier lives.”

In addition to this directory, the council’s Yorwellbeing service also offers support to local sports clubs through the Yorwellbeing club development offer. The service offers support on a variety of areas such as; funding applications, national governing body accreditations, facility development projects and community engagement.

For more information on the sports club directory or the club development offer please contact yorwellbeing@york.gov.uk or call 01904 553377.

Clubs who aren’t included within this year’s edition of the directory are asked to get in touch with the Yorwellbeing service so they can be incorporated into future publications.
