The benefits of getting active aren’t just physical. Moving more can boost your mood, and have social benefits too if you attend a class or join a club.

Starting something new can be daunting, but there is something to suit everybody and every ability here in Merton.

Active starts:

Research from Sport England shows that active children are happier, more resilient, and far more trusting of others, and Merton is committed to helping the next generation establish the foundations for an active life.

There are lots of fun and affordable ways for children and young people get active or play a sport, from expert coaching to clubs and teams.

Active for Life:

Regular physical activity is one of the most important things you can do for your health, especially as you get older.
While busy lives, ongoing health conditions or changes to your body can sometimes feel like barrier, there are lots of ways to stay active throughout life.

From walking clubs, swimming to adapted versions of your favourite sports, find what works for you.
