ParkSport logo 2016

parksport is our summer programme that takes pop-up sports to parks across Medway.

There's no booking, no commitment, no pressure and no equipment needed. Just pitch up to play and let our parksport coaches look after the rest.

The parksport programme includes weekly multi-sport sessions throughout the summer.

The parksport programme is supported and subsidised by Sport England's Community Sport Activation Fund.

In addition to the summer parksport activities, Medway Sport works in partnership with the youth service, police, Community Safety Partnership and StreetGames to deliver doorstep sport throughout the year at priority areas across Medway.

The sessions are aimed at young people/teenagers in areas of high deprivation and anti-social behaviour, creating positive diversionary opportunities for young people in their communities.

All sessions run 5pm-7pm and are free of charge, activator-led with all sports equipment supplied.
