Sporting Blakesley encompasses the sports of cricket, tennis and football within Blakesley. We support the development of the next generation of players through coaching and training. We also bring the community together through events such as the free Easter Egg hunt we provide each year and the pensioners' lunch, plus the regular sporting fixtures throughout the year. We raise money to support these activities by regular subscriptions, a sportsman's dinner, various fundraising events such as car rallies, duck races, family fun days and an annual Sevens tournament involving teams from around Northamptonshire and the surrounding area.
Our Constitution is available here.
