Join In the summer of sport

Tomorrow (27th July) will signal the start of the Join In summer, with more than 10,000 events across the country to celebrate the one year anniversary of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

More than 300,000 people took part in the inaugural Join In Weekend last summer, with a significant increase expected over this year’s six-week run.

Kicking off tomorrow and running until 9th September, the series of events intends to build on the London 2012 legacy by encouraging people back to take part in, and volunteer at, events run by local, community sports clubs.

Barnes Bridge Ladies and London Youth Rowing are among the rowing organisations that have already signed up their events to this year’s Join In, and it’s not too late for your club to sign up: visit to see how you can get involved.
