Success for Lincolnshire Sports Partnership

The Lincolnshire Sports Partnership (LSP) will be in Lincoln’s city centre this Sunday, June 13th, encouraging people to switch to an active lifestyle.

As well as promoting an active lifestyle through the sport New Age Kurling,  it is also an opportunity for the LSP to persuade people to vote for their Disability Inclusion Project.

The project has been shortlisted for “Best Sports Project” in the National Lottery Awards 2010. Voting opened on June 1st and will close on Friday June 18th, at 12pm.

Ian Brown, equality and diversity officer at the LSP, urges everyone to show up on Sunday to see what all the fuss is about.

“The project has gone from strength to strength. We have created an inclusive environment where anyone and everyone can enjoy sport and have fun.

“Now we’ve been shortlisted for such a prestigious award, we’re really encouraging people to get involved and vote for the project.

“We have a chance to put Lincolnshire on the map [and] this is an opportunity that shouldn’t be missed,” Brown says.

New Age Kurling takes its name from the Winter Olympics sport Curling. However, New Age Kurling differs hugely as it’s played on a hard, smooth surface making it easy to encorporate indoors.

The sport’s popularity has grown in light of the Disability Inclusion Project, with 34 clubs having been set up across Lincolnshire.
