It’s not too late to get your club involved

FOLLOWING on from the great success of the 2011 Festival of Sport, Borders Sport and Leisure, in partnership with the local sports councils, are organising the 2012 event, which aims to be bigger, better and a must for all sporting organisations across the region.

The festival will run from September 1 to 14 and offers an ideal opportunity for local clubs to promote themselves.

All they have to do is open their doors to new members on an existing training night. And, to make even more of this free promotional opportunity, clubs can also offer taster sessions, demonstrations or competitions to encourage people to take part.

The Festival of Sport is a Sportscotland event that will take place simultaneously in Edinburgh, the Lothians and the Borders.

Any club wishing to be included should ask for an application form, to be returned by July 16, from Mark Drummond, community sports hub manager, at
