Sports and clubs

Exercising for at least 30 minutes each day is an important part of staying healthy. Playing sport and joining a sporting club allows you to push your personal limits, have fun by keeping active, and get involved in your local community. You can stay healthy, meet new people and form friendships.

There can also be big benefits for your children. Playing sport can not only improve your child’s fitness, it can also help them develop their intellectual and social skills.
