Latest CSN Articles




From this point on, the Community Sport Network team will no longer be sending out articles.

It was established in August 2013 as a free to access news-line on all things happening in Community Sport. It was set up as a small contribution to the legacy of London 2012 which inspired us all and will live long in our memories.

Nearly five years down the track there are now a number of other respected sporting news offerings online, so we thank you for your readership and support which has extended to over 200 countries, and wish you all well in your ongoing efforts to help create a fitter, healthier sporting nation.

Thanks for being a part of it!

Team GB taekwondo star Jade Jones said:

"Olympic Day is great because it gives kids the opportunity to try out different sports that they usually wouldn’t think to have a go at. I tried quite a few when I was younger and none really clicked until I found Taekwondo. It’s taught me so much along the way and I’ve gotten to meet some incredible people.”
