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!

UK Deaf Sport hopes to understand the views, experiences and attitudes of the deaf and hard hearing community towards sport and physical activity in order to help shape the future of deaf sport in the UK.

With the aim to help improve the quality and increase the number of opportunities for the deaf community to play, coach and volunteer in sport and physical activity, UK Deaf Sport have launched their first National Sport and Physical Activity Survey.

Research shows that sports participation is lowest amongst people who are deaf or hard of hearing – only 9.9% take part in sport once a week, compared with 39.4% of non-disabled adults. 
The results of the survey are expected to be hugely important and will be used by over 20 National Governing Bodies of Sport and a wide range of leisure service providers across the country, to provide more inclusive opportunities for deaf people. The data will also support future funding applications for organisations wanting to improve their sport and physical activity offering for deaf and hard of hearing people. 

Director of Development at UK Deaf Sport, Lee Dolby said:  "I want to urge all people from the deaf community to complete the online survey, the information you provide is really important in ensuring that deaf sport and physical activity is not marginalised. This National Survey will help us continue our work to encourage deaf and hard of hearing people to participate and reach their full potential in sport.”
