Nationwide Ball Library

Alive and Kicking and Sport England have come together to create a nationwide community ball library network.  Young people can borrow a ball for free, play with it locally with friends, family and neighbours, and then return it for someone else to use.


Inspired by a group of students in Hackney, London, the ball library exists to increase access to sport and community services while strengthening community belonging. The long term aim is that everyone is in walking distance of a ball.


Check out all the confirmed details for Leaders Week London as we prepare for the return of live events this October at Twickenham Stadium. Not to worry though, for those who can’t join us we’ll still be broadcasting the event live to the Leaders Week Direct virtual event platform.
