As part of the Hertfordshire Year of Physical Activity, this September is Get Back Into month, with many activity sessions running across Hertfordshire, helping people to reacquaint themselves with sport and physical activity. The aim of the month is to encourage people who have stopped participating, coaching or volunteering back into something they once loved.

Sports clubs are constantly on the look out for new players, coaches and especially volunteers. This campaign not only offers people a route back to the sport they once loved, but also gives clubs the chance to boost their numbers. The sessions on offer will be suitable for all ages and abilities, and many of them free of charge!

All of the Get Back Into sessions can be found in the downloadable document below; if your club would like to add an open day or taster session to the list, please email Charlie Mann to discuss how we can help.
