Parksport is our summer programme that takes pop-up sports to parks across Medway and is open to all.

There's no booking, no commitment, no pressure and no equipment needed. Just pitch up to play and our parksport coaches will 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.
