To inspire more people within the city to take up and regularly take part in sport
Coventry faces a real challenge to inspire more people to take up and regularly take part in sport. In Coventry, there is a higher than average number of people that never take part in sport and this is particularly true for females, disabled people and people with a long term limiting illness.
Currently, 16 – 25 year olds are those most actively involved in sport. Coventry has a particularly young population (partly as a result of having two universities). The levels of sporting activity amongst this group influence, more than usual, the wider measures for people taking part in sport across the city as a whole.
Sport England welcomes the new Coventry Sports Strategy.
It will drive growth in participation across the city amongst all sections of the population and contribute to wider social, economic and health outcomes.
