Sports development

Tackling inactivity is one of the key focus areas for our Sports Development service, which is in line with Sport England’s Active Nation strategy (opens in new window).

Our vision is to work together with partners to enable the people of Mansfield, from the youngest to the oldest, to live happier and healthier lives in their communities, particularly where the need is greatest.

The long-term aim is to provide people with a structure to enjoy a lifelong involvement in physical, health and sport initiatives. Our aims are to:

  • increase participation in physical activity and sport
  • reduce health inequalities
  • improve social cohesion
  • deliver holiday activities
  • provide information
  • support clubs and individuals, and
  • advocate Change4Life (opens in new window).

Our Sports Development service delivers a number of other initiatives to develop physical sporting and health opportunities for people of all ages, levels of interest and ability.
