Community Sport

St.Helens Community Sport project wants to help get more people, more active, more often!

Our 3 activators are working with local sports clubs and community groups to attract more people. We are keen to support or deliver sessions that are fun, social and cater for all abilities and are currently looking at sessions including badminton, running, fitness, cycling, rounders, touch rugby and masters football.

If you are a club and would like to see how you could be involved, whether you wish to use the support of our activators, or simply need help with promotion, equipment and training, please get in touch.

If you would like to take part in one of our sessions, please keep an eye on the timetable below, which will be regularly updated as new sessions are set-up. Regardless of your fitness level or experience, there is a session for you! We are here to encourage more people to get fit through sport and physical activity.

All equipment is provided at our sessions, just turn up and take part!

Our running and multi sport sessions cater for all fitness levels and our ethos is to encourage all abilities to participate together in a supportive, friendly group.

We also work closely with our local St.Helens parkrun, where we take each group of our Couch to 5k runners at the end of each programme. St.Helens parkrun takes place every Saturday throughout the year at 9am. There's no cost, you simply register on their website to get your barcode!

Whichever group you join, you can of course progress to more competitive events if you feel ready, and want to do so. If you'd like to speak to a member of our team here at Sports Development about setting up a new session or participating in one listed above, you can email Gemma Harkness at gemmaharkness@sthelens.gov.uk or telephone 01744 675403.
