Get Active While Having FUN at all new Park Play

Park Play is a great new way to meet, move and play – a Saturday meeting for all ages and fitness levels, the concept is coming to Chichester this autumn, on Havenstoke Park.  Funded by Sport England CCDT is really excited to be working with the concept founders to train up local volunteers who will be running the group that we hope will build and grow quickly.

Helping to build happier, healthier communities, Park Play is ideal for those people that for any reason would not ordinarily sign up to traditional sports groups but would love to get outdoors and be a bit more active, at a pace they feel comfortable with.  The sessions involve two hours of FREE community play every Saturday. It involves active and inclusive games that all generations can play together, enabling people to have fun and connect in a safe environment, run by the community for the community.

Many individuals that have taken part in other regions where more established groups are already working have talked about barriers, they have always felt to joining active groups have been broken down by this inclusive new way of getting involved.  Those who through age, ability, lack of confidence or anxieties have held back are now meeting regularly and feel part of a vibrant community.

Comments Clare de Bathe, CEO of CCDT, “We are so grateful to Sports England for funding this amazing new programme, and the volunteers that have already come forward to run the sessions. We know from personal experience how intimidating it can be to take that first step into joining a new group and love the approachable nature of these sessions.  We are still looking for more volunteers but are almost ready to get the sessions underway and would love as many Chichester residents and beyond as possible to come and give it a go. As the colder weather approaches it’s the perfect reason to get outdoors and having some much-needed fun.”
