Give Outdoor Sports A Go This Summer

It’s that time of year again when everyone wants to be out making the most of the sunny weather, and in Derby there’s plenty to do outside.

If you’re stuck for activities to do this summer then maybe it is time to try out a new outdoor sport. Across Derby Parks there’s a host of activities to keep people fit and healthy.

At Markeaton Park people looking for something a little different can try Footgolf, the latest craze that replaces a golf ball with a football and a club with your foot. Footgolf is a great way to get active whilst trying something new, with a group of friends, colleagues or family on the 9 hole course at Markeaton Park.

For golf novice’s looking to get into golf, now is the perfect time to try out golf at Allestree Golf Course. With 18 holes and a course length of 5806 yards, Allestree is classed as a par 68 course with its undulating parkland and tree-lined fairways making every hole a testing but fair challenge. Until the 31 August get into golf for just £5 a game. Find out more at

For runners looking for a change of scenery from the gym treadmill or the city streets Moorways Running Track is the perfect place to complete their distance this summer. The track provides a safe and easy place to run, and with a Run Pass for just £30 for 3 months runners can enjoy unlimited use of the running track. Find out more about Moorways Run Pass at

Summer is the perfect time of year to pick up a racquet, act like you’re at Wimbledon and have a game of tennis. Markeaton Park has two tennis courts that can be booked online throughout summer. Keep fit and have fun with free sessions available online.
