Community Sports Banks

Sports gear

Community Sports Banks

Your local Community Sports Bank has sports gear to get families active, get friends together and ease the effects of the last few months on everyone's mental health.

Community Sports Banks are a drop-off point for unused or outgrown sports gear, and for that gear to be picked up and used by families that would otherwise not be able to afford it. Sport poverty is a growing issue within our communities with three main barriers to sport participation; subs/fees, equipment costs, and transport. The aim of the Community Sports Banks is to reduce/eliminate these barriers.
