Promotional Support

At Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport, are here to support local Clubs, Groups and Organisations to promote themselves and the sessions and events they have available. This support is through our free to use 'Get Active Search Engine'.

Our Get Active Search Engine is a free platform to help physical activity, sport and wellbeing providers promote their opportunities to new and existing participants. It was accessed by over 58,000 users from April 2019-2020 and is also promoted by each of the Local Authority's Physical Activity & Health Teams.

To get started, you'll need to log-in or register on this website.

We are looking to improve how we promote the broader sector of businesses within the sport and physical activity sector, therefore if you have any feedback, please contact Ali Clements.
