  • Charnwood logo news banner

Following recent government advice regarding the coronavirus pandemic, we have made the tough decision to temporarily cancel some of our sports activities until further notice.

Please see below details of the activities which have been cancelled.

We will continue to review our events and activities and will keep you updated.

Our primary concern is the health and wellbeing of everyone who lives, works and visits Charnwood.

Anyone who has pre-paid for any activities will be contacted directly by staff members regarding any refunds.

We apologise for any inconvenience and will keep you updated via our website www.charnwood.gov.uk/sportandleisure and via our social media channels @activecharnwood on Twitter and facebook.com/activecharnwood.

If you have any further questions, please get in touch with the team on sport@charnwood.gov.uk
