About Sports Development

We work to promote and develop sport and physical activity for the local community.

Sports Development works to promote and develop sport and physical activity for the local community of Ards and North Down, recognising the important role sport and an active lifestyle play in enhancing quality of life and promoting health and wellbeing in the community.

This is achieved by working with clubs and schools and providing opportunities for everyone to take part in sport or physical activity.

The team also provides an important link to governing bodies of sport and Sport NI and is the ‘go to’ for all sports persons from grass roots to elite athletes in the local area.

The team is responsible for delivering the Sports Forum, funding for clubs, education courses, schools programmes, sport and exercise programmes for the public and the annual Sports Awards ceremony.
