Sport clubs across the North Devon and Torridge area are taking up the opportunity of free support to help them cope with the increased level of demand following the London Olympic and Paralympic Games.

County sport partnership Active Devon is holding a free club support evening next Monday, October 22, at Barnstaple Rugby Club for clubs from North Devon and Torridge.

The evening will offer clubs the opportunity to find out about the latest programmes and help available to manage and grow membership levels. The workshop will focus on developing school links and identifying and applying for funding.

The partnership regularly runs support and training events for clubs and coaches, but has been prompted to organise additional events due to the increase in interest experienced by sports clubs across the area as a result of people being inspired to play sport as a result of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Sport Clubs interested in attending should visit www.activedevon.org/clubsupport for further details and complete our online booking form to reserve a place or call 01392 263674.
