Weekend Challenge

Friday, June 27, 2014

Sports are turning up the heat this weekend.  The World Cup continues in Brazil while tennis at Wimbledon is ramping up the the UK.  Who are you rooting for?

If you don't know much about either one, spend some time this weekend learning about football (soccer ball) and tennis.

If you are lucky enough to live in the UK, check out Tennis For Free to get more info about where you can play.

Perhaps you are already a football and tennis champ? Consider supporting these charities who help bring sport to  kids:

Access Sport: Founded in 2004 Access Sport is a dynamic charity whose mission is to give more children, particularly in disadvantaged areas, access to a wide range of quality local sport.  We look to harness the proven power of sport to tackle social exclusion, inactivity and obesity in areas where help is most needed. We achieve this through empowering the inspirational community volunteers who set up and run local sports clubs with cash, expert advice and networking to help create thriving clubs which get more people positively engaged.

London Sports Trust: The London Sports Trust is a charity dedicated to helping young Londoners through sport. We work with local partners, schools and communities to help disadvantaged children and young people fulfil their potential. Our mentoring and training programmes give the confidence, skills and knowledge to achieve in all aspects of life.

United Through SportWe are a UK registered charity, established in 2004, dedicated to encouraging disadvantaged individuals and communities to develop to their full potential in sport, education and health.  United Through Sport is motivated by two core beliefs:
1. Every man, woman and child has the right to participate in sport and should be enabled to do so.
2. Sport is a unifying force for good and should be used to promote community cohesion and personal wellbeing around the world.
