What is Active Hastings?
What is it?
Active Hastings works closely with local providers of physical activity to give you easy, fun ways to get your everyday dose of physical activity. It only takes 30 minutes a day for adults and 60 a day for children to get fitter, healthier and happier. You can even break it down into 10 minute slots!
Hastings we are lucky to have fantastic instructors delivering 100s of amazing sessions a week from walks in the park to Zumba and netball to tai chi. So whether you're a fitness freak of a couch potato, from 2 to 102, we've got something for you.

As well as working with partners to bring you the Active Hastings programme, the team are constantly busy working behind the scenes to make Hastings a more active town. Here are some examples of the projects we are currently working on:
Sports for All
Funded by Sport England, in partnership with Grace Eyre Foundation, this project offers opportunities for people with learning disabilities to take part in sport and physical activity. The project was launched in September 2014 and is currently funded for 3 years. We have been working closely with local day centres to increase the local physical activity offer and are currently running 11 sessions per week as part of this project.
1066 Cycling Festival
Active Hastings is a key partner in the delivery of the 1066 cycle festival. The next event will be on 25 and 26 September 2021.

The Active Hastings Partnership
Active Hastings coordinates the local Community Physical Activity Network, which brings together schools, sport clubs, National Governing Bodies of Sport, health organisations, the voluntary sector and the private sector to work together, unblock barriers to participation and improve the local sport and physical activity delivery system.
To find out more about the Active Hastings Partnership see the Active Hastings Partnership and Strategy Page.
The Active Hastings Volunteer Network
The Active Hastings Volunteer Network is the first step for anyone of any age, to start their volunteer journey in sport and physical activity. The network exists to be a one-stop shop, where volunteers can sign up and be sent information on local opportunities and available training.
To find out more about the volunteer network see our "I want to volunteer in sport" page.
