Want to play sport but don't want to commit to regular training? Are you a beginner and want to enhance your skills? Or simply just want to try something new? Then get involved in Just Play!

It’s our social sport programme based around getting active, making friends and having fun. With drop-in sport sessions each week, massive one-off events and LearnTo courses there really is something for everyone.

Drop-in sessions cost just £2 each to attend; which includes a qualified coach, use of brand new equipment and facility usage. 

Over 88% of Just Play programme costs are covered through internal funding, making it as cheap as possible to take part. Don't say we don't look after you...
