An Active Nation

At Sport England, our job is to encourage people to be active, no matter their age, background or level of ability, and Leisure Kicks is packed      full of inspiration.

At the heart of Sport England’s strategy Towards An Active Nation, is the idea that the sports sector should be a welcoming place for everyone – not just the people who are already sporty,      but the people who might feel it’s not   for them.

Within the pages of Leisure Kicks there is something for all. You can find out how to get started in more than 35 different sports, and find information on a sports or leisure facility that’s local to you.
