Our Focus

Sport Works’ programmes change lives. We are one of the leading sport for development organisations in the UK, supporting more communities to become physically active and more people to engage in education. Our nationwide projects include:

Community Sports Programmes

Our Community Sport programmes use the ‘power of sport’ to tackle a range of issues such as crime, anti-social behaviour, community cohesion and social mobility. We deliver diversionary activities and work with partners such as the Police and Youth Offending Teams to provide positive pathways for participants.

Inclusive Disability Sport

Our sessions are much more than just sport, we focus on developing life and social skills whilst raising aspirations.   We have a solid track record of supporting participants to excel and be the best they can be ensuring they benefit from fun, friendships and fitness.

Skills & Education

Our education programmes harness the power of sport to support learners who may be at risk of disengaging with education or who are excluded.  Our existing clients including Central Government, Colleges, Prisons and Local Authorities recognise how sport can engage learners in a way that almost no other subject can.

Amazing feedback from our participants who access the walking tennis programme at Beverley Park Lawn Tennis Club. Well done to all who take part and increase their health and well-being.

Beverley Park Lawn Tennis Club
Since August 2020 we have delivered a Walking Tennis programme for participants, which has seen players of all abilities attend, an age range of someone in their 20’s playing against someone in their 70’s.

The session has also seen people travel miles just to get on court and we have also seen players from other racket sports such as Badminton and Squash come along and give it a go!

This has allowed people to return to the game they once loved or give beginners the perfect pathway into the sport!

9 months into the programme we asked some of our participants what Walking Tennis means to them....
