Using the Welsh Language in Sport

Give it a go!

1 in 5 people in Wales speak Welsh. Offering club sessions in Welsh can:

  • Attract new members and volunteers to your sport
  • Meet the needs of your current members
  • Create a sense of team and national pride

Welsh speakers are more likely to take part in sport and volunteer. 42% of children aged 10-14 can speak Welsh and this figure is increasing.

OK, so where do I start?

Access a practical pack called #Amdani created especially for sports clubs and associations.
