A NEW initiative will allow people to find sports club and activities in the area, in a hope to continue the Olympic legacy.

The Your Sport, Your Town initiative works in partnership with local clubs, who can upload information with the aim of increasing membership and participation.

Your Sport, Your Town has been formed by partners including Barnsley Council, Barnsley College and Barnsley Premier Leisure. Local clubs will be able to access support from these partners, such as free venue hire and promotion.

David Redfern, of BPL, said: "We're delighted the website is now live. It's a great way for individuals to locate a sport that's right for them in the area and also superb for clubs to promote what they do."

BPL will be making its Barnsley leisure facilities such as the Metrodome free to use by clubs who wish to host taster sessions and workshops.
