2012 is an amazing year for British sports. The London 2012 Games continue to highlight the importance of sport and the positive role it can play, not only in terms of fitness but it also teaches other great qualities .
To celebrate this great year Kirklees Active Leisure (KAL) have hosted various challenges, offered free sport taster sessions and have even held their very own KAL Games which proved to be very successful, BUT we still want people to get involved in sports and keep active.
