Slingsby Sports and Social Club – Slingsby Sport for All Project (and 24 hour darts marathon!)

Slingsby Sports Field has been a centre of community activities since at least the 1920’s and over the years the facilities have been improved to meet the changing needs of our community.  The Sports and Social Club is used extensively by many members of the community, including being the sportsfield for children attending Slingsby School.  However, the current facilities, which were built in the 1980’s and have served the community well, are in need of significant development.

The vision is to transform the facilities available to all parts of our community, including people of all ages and backgrounds who use the club for either sports, play or socially, especially those who may have mobility issues.

The project will achieve this in 5 areas.

  • Activity 1 – Extension to the Sports Club to improve access for people with disabilities and improving the changing rooms and shower facilities
  • Activity 2 – Improvement to sporting facilities and coaching resources
  • Activity 3 – Improvement to catering facilities
  • Activity 4 – Improved outdoor seating for families and disabled visitors
  • Activity 5 – Environmentally sustainable renewable energy system

In order to raise money for this project The Sports and Social Club are running a wide range of fundraising activities, including:

  • A 24 hour darts marathon running from 9am on Saturday 11th March to 9am on Sunday 12th March which they are hoping will set the world record for the most points scored by a team in 24 hours on a Yorkshire (doubles) dart board.  If anybody would like to take part, either as a player, helper or supporter they would be more than welcome.  Just get in touch with Paul Hogarth to find out more by emailing [email protected] or phoning 01653 628219.
  • A Crowdfunding page that has a wide range of rewards available for people making donations, including some one off opportunities including a guided tour of the church with a view from the tower.  The link to the crowdfunding page is https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/p/slingsby-sport-for-all#start
