Sports Key is a community interest group which aims to put provision in place for people from disadvantaged communities to excel in sport.
This project was successful in enabling inactive women predominately from BME Black and Minority Ethnic) backgrounds to become more active.
IMPACT: Project reached over 50 women and girls who were predominantly inactive and attended at least 1 session
30 women and girls were retained over the course of the sessions.
FUTURE PLANS: Feedback from participants highlighted longer session to 1 and ½ hour session was preferred
Sports Key aims to upskill a committed participant from the session & support them to qualify as a netball coach to sustain the delivery of sessions
The LTA has become the first national governing body to sign the new Sporting Equals Charter, which aims to actively promote greater involvement in sport and physical activity among Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.
