Join In - Olympic Legacy

Posted by Rob Short at 01:04 on 15 April 2013

Last summer, the UK’s first Join In was hailed as the country’s biggest celebration of local sport.

On the weekend after the Olympics and before the Paralympics, we asked people across the UK to come together and celebrate where it began for all of our Olympians – their local sports clubs.

And come together they did:
» 300,000+ people took part at a Join In event
» 30,000 new volunteers created
» 6,000+ events held around the UK
» 30,000+ clubs in our network
» 1m+ website page views in 7 days

But it doesn't stop there...

Between the first anniversary of the London 2012 Olympic Opening Ceremony and the close of the Paralympics, we will hold another Join In summer – even bigger and better than before.

From 27 July to 9 September 2013, our patron Eddie Izzard will head a team of sporting icons and celebrities to help UK sports clubs make the most of this special opportunity.
