Bucks is top in national sporting survey

More people take part in competitive sport in Buckinghamshire than anywhere else in England, according to the national Active People Survey.

And Bucks is also top in the country for residents receiving sports tuition and for those taking part in organised sport.

The results have just been released by Sport England following the ninth annual Active People Survey.

The findings were welcomed by Mark Ormerod, Director of Leap, the Sport and Activity Partnership for Bucks & Milton Keynes, who said: “These results are fantastic for us, following campaigns and strategies to attract more people into sports coaching, particularly female coaches.”
