SPORTS

Sporting links for all ages

This is by no means a comprehensive list of all sports-related activities going on in the UK but it should help anyone who wants to get more active. For an overview of most sports, the following Sport England website is very good https://www.sportengland.org/

I have found the following links for information about these individual sports very helpful.

Triathlon

Why not try a ‘tri’? They have the relaxed atmosphere of a ‘fun run’  and as they start in waves, you will always be competing with someone beside you, no matter how slow you think you are going.  There are many triathlons for children and adults on the same day so everyone can participate. Here are some quicklinks to find out more:
