Community sports

Sessions for adults from ethnic minorities

The following sports sessions are designed to bring all members of the community together in these inclusive activities. They were set up to appeal to minority groups in Cambridge who have traditionally been less involved in some of our other sporting activities, but these activities are open to all.

Everyone is encouraged to come along, learn a new sport and get fit while meeting new friends and learning a bit about other cultures.
