'All their lives some kids, they’re told they’re never going to achieve anything’
On Saturday 25th May, one of our Hackney based clubs, Pedro Amateur Boxing Club, held an open air boxing show to exhibit their young talent and to open their doors up to the local community!
On Saturday one of the Easton-based Access Sport partner clubs, Urban Fit raised £750 in sponsorship for their group by running up and down six tower-blocks in the area.
Access Sport partner club Forest Flyerz, the disability section of Waltham Forest Hockey Club, was involved in something very special on April 11 at their home ground of Walthamstow Academy: “Hockey Nation 2013: An Inclusive Event”.
Access Sport was recently given a hugely generous donation of £400 from NGG Sports presented by their co-founder Nich Golding (pictured).

We are thrilled to announce that London Phoenix our Greenwich based ladies football team have successfully made it to the final of the London Junior FA Cup!
London Phoenix was founded in 2010 by a group of dedicated and enthusiastic women and since then the club has gone from strength to strength! They have grown dramatically and they now have over 30 girls that train regularly. They have also set up a number of outreach sessions and have succeeded in engaging with a variety of girls from disadvantaged areas!
Access Sport has recently been awarded funding from Sport England's Inclusive Sport Fund to expand its Disability Legacy Project in East London and to Bristol and Manchester too. This means that we are looking to recruit three Club Development Managers, one in each region, who will be responsible with the Disability Legacy Project Leader for delivering on the key objectives of the project.
