Basingstoke Sports Council

Serving Basingstoke's sporting community for over 25 years.

Simply the Best

Basingstoke Voluntary Sports Council works in partnership with a variety of organisations to raise the profile and support identified talented sportsmen and women within the Borough of Basingstoke & Deane. Various schemes have seen excellent support over the past couple of years recognising sporting achievement and it is hoped to develop this to further support and develop those moving toward Regional, National, International, Commonwealth, World and Olympic performance levels. This will require further support from the local Business Community and publicity from the Basingstoke Gazette and Destination Basingstoke.
