Sport and participation in sport still remains an important part of our culture. Working towards Sport England’s outcomes, across Woking, we want to contribute to their national target of getting ‘half a million people more active’ by 2020. Locally we strive to support the Boroughs outcomes; to enrich the cultural life of the Borough for the benefit of the whole community, develop and utilise open spaces, sport and recreation grounds to create opportunities for residents to participate and enjoy.
Within Woking we know that 22.9% of adults are active and 61.8% of the population are doing the recommended levels (150 min) of activity per week. As 30% want to do more sport, we develop programmes with key organisations such as Woking Borough Council, Active Surrey and NGBs to develop more sporting and leisure opportunities. We work with local sports clubs and want to celebrate local sporting success.
