We’re really excited to be partnering with ParkPlay who will be launching their project in Gunnersbury Park this Spring. Partnering with Sport England, they will be hoping to connect with local communities to encourage use of this stunning green-space whilst encouraging play and an active lifestyle to people who may find the idea of fitness inaccessible.
ParkPlay will be acting as a “bridge” to these individuals who may find the idea of stepping into a gym intimidating or simply feel that it’s not for them. To do this they aim to uplift these groups by running free park-based activities such as frisbee and park walks, to boost confidence and show them the fantastic social aspect that sport based activities can have. They will work closely with our team in the Sports Hub and introduce them to our gym or classes when they feel they have more confidence and desire to get further involved in sport.
As a social enterprise ParkPlay’s initiative fits perfectly with our ethos, so we can’t wait to support some of their fantastic activities. Watch this space and follow our social media pages for more info!
