The sports development team
We help clubs, communities and organisations to develop sports and physical activities in the borough. Our aim is to help people attend fun and fulfilling activities.
Currently we are focusing on:
- supporting activity deliverers to improve what they offer
- improving communication about sports opportunities
- increasing activities for people who do little or no physical activity
- helping people to develop as sports coaches and activity leaders
- obtaining more resources with the community to initiate new activity projects
Current sports development opportunities and initiatives
- Community Sports Awards – local event to celebrate local athletes, coaches, volunteers and clubs.
- Mini Marathon – opportunity for young people to be selected to run at the London Marathon event.
- Sports grants, award schemes and funding – GLL Sport Foundation support, Linford Christie Young Athlete Grant

- Let Me Play – Hammersmith & Fulham Let Me Play summer activity programme includes creative arts, performing arts and sports and all sessions differ in length to suit everyone. There are opportunities such as gym sessions, battle of the bands, swimming with inflatables and kayaking on the River Thames, basketball camps, musical theatre workshops and a make-up masterclass. All camps are funded by the council and are free to attend for 11-19 year olds of all abilities.
