Out For Sport Week: Monday 13th to Sun 19th August
Out For Sport and London’s LGBT sports clubs invite you to try a new sport!
18 of London’s LGBT sports clubs have got together to organise a week of ‘Sports Taster Sessions’ for London’s LGBT community to try out new sports. We want to showcase London’s vibrant and inclusive LGBT sports community, and show that we have something to offer everyone, regardless of age or ability.
For information about each sport taster session, please go to:
Out For Sport’s website http://www.outforsport.com/ (check out the menu of events under the ‘Out For Sport Week 2012’ tab under the Out For Sport logo)

It’s not just about taking part in sport though, there is a social element too!
