Sports and health activities

Our aim is to provide a broad range of opportunities for people living and working in the Derbyshire Dales to become more active, improve health and wellbeing, and improve quality of life.

Active Everyone
If you are new to or returning to physical activity then why not start with Active Everyone. A fun and social low level activity programme for all.
Walking for Health
A series of weekly walks ranging from entry level to more advanced. No matter what level, all Walking for Health walks are friendly, social, and are delivered by committed volunteers.
Clubs First
Everything your clubs needs from funding advice, coaching courses and much more. Join Clubs First today.
Go Cycling
Safe, weekly cycle rides delivered off road by friendly ride leaders. Similar to our walks, Go Cycling cycle rides are social and friendly, and provide the opportunity to be out and about with likeminded friends and family.
