What is the Sport Without Borders project about?
The National League Trust are funding Notts County Foundation to put on a free multisport session for asylum seekers and refugees. This session is about giving an opportunity to asylum seekers and refugees to play sport and become physically active. This session is ran at the Portland Centre ran by Notts County Foundation 12-1 every Thursday during school term time. This project is for both children and adults so all ages are welcome.
Tournaments & Opportunities
Whilst attending Sport Without Borders there will be many opportunities for participants to attend. During June 2023 we ran a football tournament at the Forest Sports Zone. This was attended by over 50 people with each participant getting the chance to play in the 5 a side tournament. Both the runners up and winners received a medal and a trophy. Alongside this we work in partnership with other charities such as the British Red Cross, Trent Vineyard and The City Of Sanctuary. In these partnerships we deliver other sessions across Nottingham giving people access to play sport across Nottingham. This includes taster sessions, free tickets to go and watch Notts County and many more.
