Walking Sports Festival

As part of National Walking Month, we have brought together the community teams of Leicester’s sports clubs, to create a walking sports programme at Spinney Hill Park. Anybody can try walking sports and it is a great way for people to build regular activity into their lives and make new friends.

The FREE Walking Sports programme kicks off with a social meet and greet session on Tuesday 18 April from 10am – 11am at Wesley Hall, 76 Hartington Rd, Leicester LE2 0GN. Come along to find out more about United Leicester, a collaboration of the city’s professional clubs and their community outreach teams.

Regular sessions will then take place weekly from Tuesday 25  April to Tuesday 23 May from 10am – 12pm in Spinney Hill Park, near to the ball courts
