Joining a local sports team is an amazing way to get involved in the community. Maybe you are new to the area and you’re looking to meet new like-minded people or, maybe you’re a Devonian born and bred but you want to get fit or get involved in something new and exciting.


Sports teams help us to connect with each other. They build community and strength of unity between us. Sports clubs are also excellent for children, they are taught discipline, (training and respecting the ref) and it widens their social circle outside of school.
