FREE Pop Up Sports at Allerton Grange Fields 2016
A summer full of Pop Up Sports at Allerton Grange Fields was delivered in 2015
What Is Pop Up Sports?
Pop Up Sports is an exciting way of providing high quality sports coaching within local communities. Trained sports coaches deliver a number of different sports in locations where there may not be a formal sports club. The project is aimed at 8 to 18 year olds and are FREE to access. One of the aims of the project is to address the inequalities that exist accessing high quality sports coaching.
How are the sessions funded?
