It has been shown that taking part in sport helps with general health and wellbeing, playing sports can help reduce body fat or body weight, help fight depression and anxiety and help aid coordination, balance and flexibility as well as improve stamina and concentration.

Through sports you will meet people with a similar interest to yourself and are likely to gain many new friends. It’s also a great way for families to get exercise together.

As part of libraries Health and Well Being Week we would like to encourage people to take up a sport or return to a sport they once played. Peruse the sports market place at Storyhouse and talk to the people who enjoy their sport and find out about opportunities to take part. There will also be some drop in taster sessions.
