Sports Facilities

There are nearly 200 sports facilities across the Craven district. These are run by a range of organisations such as Craven District Council, schools, charities, sports clubs and commercial businesses. There are too many to list here but they are all listed on the national Active Places website.

Craven Pool - outside

Following the London 2012 Olympics, Sport England worked with the BBC to set up "Be Inspired" project that lists all sporting activities from Sports Clubs to Sports Events. For sports facilities, use the Active Places Power to search for what you want.

Be Inspired is about 99% accurate, so if the facility is not listed, it probably does not fall within the Sport England criteria for being included. Skate parks would fall into this category. There are five skate parks in Craven: Aireville Park Skipton, Grassington, Glusburn, Cononley and High Bentham.
