Sport and participation in sport still remains an important part of our culture. Working towards Sport England’s 5 outcomes, across Hastings, we want to contribute to their national target of getting ‘half a million people more active’ by 2020. We want to also support with local outcome of increasing participation in physical activity and encouraging more residents to meet the Department of Health’s physical activity recommendations as referred to by the Hastings Sport & Physical Activity Strategy 2016 – 2020.
Within Hastings we know that 73.8% of adults are active and 57.9% of the population are doing the recommended levels (150 min) of activity per week. We develop programmes with key organisations such as Badminton England, Swim England and other sport based national governing bodies to develop more programmes of activity. We work with local sports clubs and want to celebrate local sporting success.
