Outreach programmes at Surrey Sports Park, with Shannen Betts

Shannen and Surrey Sports Park’s menu of fantastic outreach offerings is so extensive and thorough, you’ll need to have fitness and stamina on your side – you’ll want to try them all.

Surrey Sports Park really is the perfect blend of state-of-the-art facilities, world-class coaches and endless opportunities for fun, fitness and learning. From the University’s student sports clubs that run taster sessions in local schools, to Sports Park days and events tailored for families who have special needs but want activities they can all participate in together – ‘there’s something for everyone here,’ attests Shannen.

Even Surrey Youth Games is a collaboration and partnership. Shannen explains, ‘We work with Guildford Borough Council and Active Surrey to run six weeks of training before the Games, and then Surrey Sports Park’s hosts the Games themselves.’

The ultimate aim? To expose local citizens of all ages to new sports and activities and to inspiration about fitness and healthy lifestyles. No one at Surrey Sports Park will be the least surprised to see their programmes produce an Olympian or two!
