Activities in Kirklees
Have a go at a variety of activities suitable for beginners
About the events
A range of organisations have come together to provide activites and the programme is coordinated by Kirklees Council's Sport and Physical Activity Development Team.
The group sessions are organised by experienced people who will guide beginners, and people returning to an activity after a break, to take things step by step to build up fitness and confidence.
- You will need to wear comfortable footwear and clothing suitable for outdoors, and all weather.
- Some activities have a café break so bring some money, or your own drink and snack.
- If you have any particular health concerns, be sure to contact the organiser of the activity in advanced.
Activities are taking place in parks and green spaces all over Kirklees; so why not get involved and get healthier, meet new friends and maybe learn a new skill.

The District Committees have provided funding for the Sport and Physical Activity Development Team to coordinate local organisations to support them in delivering activities aimed at people who are not currently active, or would be interested in beginners and introductory sessions.
We are looking for groups or individuals who are interested in encouraging people to become more active, have a warm and welcoming approach and want to promote long term participation. We are keen to support new leaders who would like to be trained up to deliver or support these sessions. Funding could also include venue hire, coaching costs and beginners equipment if required.
We would like a range of organisations to come together under the banner of Try It Like It, Do it to provide or promote existing activities and programmes aimed at getting people more physically active.
This project could benefit your organisation if your organisation:-
- puts on sessions suitable for beginners/ inactive participants which we can help you to promote
- would like to start up a new session targeting beginners/ inactive participants
- has anyone interested in becoming an activity leader to run a new session
