Aviva Community Fund

Thank you so much to all the people who supported our bid to the Aviva Community Fund during November. In the end we secured an amazing 2,196 votes for our Sports Court Project, but unfortunately this still wasn’t enough to get through to the finals of the competition.

It was still very reassuring that so many people do support our endeavours and we are of course undeterred and have 4 other grant applications in the pipeline (none of which require supporter votes!), so watch this space.

Thanks for your support.

Tennis

Desford Lawn Tennis Club was formed in 2008, to provide opportunities for everyone in the community to play tennis.

Bowls

The club was formed just over 20 years ago and although young in bowling terms it is well established in local bowling circles.

Desford Striders

Founded in 1991 in Leicestershire, Desford Striders is a small, friendly, running club that welcomes runners of any ability.

Scouts

Scouting in Desford is thriving. Over the past six years, the number of children (and adult volunteers) involved in scouting in our community has grown massively.

Football

This is SiD’s main pitch located on the main site at Peckleton Lane. The resident club at Peckleton Lane is Desford Football Club with 4 teams playing on this pitch.

The Gym

As a part of the scout development the gym was extended by 40% to accommodate more new equipment and to provide a better service for our members.

Table Tennis

We have an excellent provision for Table Tennis in the spacious and well lit Scout Hall with room for 6 tables in action at once.

Karate

Here at Sport in Desford we are currently running 4 karate classes during the week. All ages are welcome!

Squash

The Squash Club has two courts which were refurbished in 2014 to a high standard. For more information please click the image.
