Derbyshire Village Games is a highly visible, accessible community spirited sport project across rural Derbyshire. It uses inter village competition, festivals and events to encourage people to participate in sport and recreation. It is the catalyst to a programme of club development, coach development and volunteer recruitment, and builds village identity and social interaction.
Derbyshire Village Games Co-ordinators are working with 50 villages each year across rural Derbyshire between 2010 and 2013. They support communities to develop coaching, clubs, festivals and competitions (to see what's coming up, click here.
