Preston SportsFest – sports opportunities

Better Leisure Centres (West View and Fulwood, previously ran by Preston City Council) are currently running an initiative called Preston Sports Fest to help promote club sessions and showcase the opportunities for local people in Preston to come along and access.

Preston Sports Fest provides an opportunity for members of the public to come along to the club open sessions and take part free of charge for their first session. Clubs this year are holding up to 3 open sessions over the next 3 weeks, at different venues across Preston. Feedback from last year stated that open sessions provided a good opportunity to ease new participants into activities they would not normally have the confidence to try or didn’t necessarily know were available to them.


They attracted over 200 new participants last year as part of the campaign which also linked with the ‘I am Team GB Olympics’ initiative whereby many participants had a fantastic experience at a new club and continued to participate there. The programme of all clubs involved this year and the dates they are running sessions can be seen above.

Top Lancashire Sports Award

We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Sports Award for ‘Best Primary School in Lancashire’. Mr Martland attended the award ceremony last night (Friday 4th December) at the Preston Guild Hall. We knew we had been nominated along with other schools but to win is tremendous news.

Special thanks goes to Mr Martland for his coordination of sport here at St Andrew’s and also to all the other staff for the time that they freely give in supporting sport in school.

Not forgetting all the children that get involved in sport through our clubs and teams, their passion, enthusiasm and commitment is second to none!
