Welcome to SPORTSZONE – our monthly magazine designed to give you a flavour of sport in Northern Ireland – those who contribute to it and those who compete.


Every month SportsZone will bring you information on sporting activities, interviews with Northern Ireland athletes giving you an insight into their sporting career, and a behind the scenes look at those who work to further develop sport, create more awareness and endeavour to encourage people to get involved and try something new.


Through SportsZone we will highlight the commitment of athletes to their sporting career and the sworkforce behind sport, the challenges they face and the message that sport is fun and should be enjoyed by everyone.


We hope you enjoy reading SportsZone – and spread the word that it is now a monthly must read. We would welcome any comments – particularly about what you would like to read about in future issues – please forward to [email protected]
