ON YOUR MARKS!
Get involved in Join In Local Sport this weekend!
This weekend (18/19th August), thousands of clubs and community groups are opening their doors for the UK’s biggest celebration of local sport - and you’re invited!
Why should you get involved? Well after an incredibly successful Olympic Games, and no doubt equally successful Paralympics, sports clubs up and down the country want to keep that level going.
The whole thing is free and if you volunteer you might be the one that inspires the next Jessica Ennis or Mo Farah – and you don’t need to be an expert.
Maybe you just want to get fit, take up a new sport or get one of the kids to start playing a sport (after all Tom Daley competed in the Beijing Olympics when he was just 14!)
UK wide there are almost 6,000 events that you can get involved in.
So what are you waiting for, head to the Join In website and find out what events are happening near you this weekend.
