SiD’s aim is to provide reasonably priced sporting and recreational facilities for the people of Desford and surrounding areas.
SiD is a Registered Charity (No. 1100319) and is run by an Executive Management Committee, which consists of a management team and representatives from all the affiliated sports sections – Bowls, Football, Fitness Gym, Squash, Striders Running, Scouting and Tennis. The Committee members are volunteers. This Committee are answerable to a Board of 7 Trustees, all of whom also work on a voluntary basis.
Following the Government’s recent limited relaxation of the lockdown, the SiD clubhouse is now open for some for limited activities as follows:
Outdoor: Tennis, Bowls, Football, Futsal, Netball, Running and Boot Camp
Indoor: The gym, Squash (Court 2 only), Table tennis, Pilates and Karate
Other activities will follow incrementally
All activities will be subject to stringent restrictions to limit the spread of Covid-19. Please consult the activity leader for the specific instructions in each case. At all times please adhere to the 2 metre social distancing, sanitising hands frequently, following designated one way systems and avoiding congregating in the clubhouse before and after activities. The main activity rooms now have much reduced capacity so group sizes will be much smaller.
The coronavirus crisis is unprecedented in modern times. Physical activity matters during this period and, actually, we think it’s more important than ever right now. We want to do everything that we can to support people to get and stay active, provided they are well enough.
As a result Leicester Rutland Sport (LRS) have now been able to launch their Healthy At Home offer which they will continue to develop and promote over the forthcoming months and are looking for support from partners to do so.
Their Healthy At Home webpage (www.lrsport.org/HealthyAtHome) hosts a range of resources, links, hints and tips to support people be Active At Home, Work At Home, Wellbeing At Home. This will be an expanding and developing resource.
