East Grinstead has a rich and diverse sporting landscape. Apart from being home to some very successful clubs on the local and national stages, it also has an excellent forum for its clubs in the form of the East Grinstead Sports Council. Meeting quarterly, the Sports Council allows our clubs to network, celebrate success, learn from each other and move forward collectively. The quarterly meetings are hosted by some of the Town’s clubs that have clubhouse facilities.
Amongst its successes the Sports Council has facilitated a five year plan for local sport, initiated a funding initiative that saw £150,000 raised in revenue grants from national funding agencies for several of the local clubs and schools, and supported several new initiatives including the recent launch of an East Grinstead parkrun at East Court.
If you know of, or are involved with, a sports club that could benefit from being part of this shared success please put the representatives in touch with me through my contact details below. The next meeting will be on Thursday 29th March at 7.30pm at East Grinstead Target Shooting Club at East Court.
