Who Can Access the Sports Library?

The equipment is available to anyone within the community who are NOT-FOR-PROFIT – from families, to community groups to clubs. This service is aimed at increasing physical activity options available to the general public in the North East Region. The Sports Library gives the opportunity to purely seek out unstructured activities for fun, whether it be getting the family active in the back yard for a game of cricket or a community running a festival, the Sports Library will add an area of interest to increase participation for everyone. It is a great resource for clubs to access for training sessions without any expense to the club. Why not hold family fun activities at half time on match day utilising some of the components of the Sports Library Equipment? Please note – all borrowers need to be at least 18 years of age and be able to prove they will not gain financial benefits from borrowing equipment from the library.

Bookings

Bookings are required at least 7 days in advance, subject to availability. Bookings are made by contacting Sport North East at The Centre at Chisholm Street.  They can be made over the phone, via email or by calling into the office. It would be appreciated that if a cancellation occurs, Sport North East at The Centre is contacted as soon as possible to allow the equipment to be available to be re-hired.

Terms and Conditions

The Sports Library is borrowed out to the public as “hire at own risk”. It is strongly advised that in the case of an event / festival, the hirer is covered by public liability insurance. Sport North East holds no responsibility for any claims relating to equipment borrowed for events/festivals.

It is expected that equipment borrowed is returned in the same condition as it left the premises and that all pieces are returned. It is recommended that the equipment is supervised by an adult (18 years or older).  The equipment is FREE of charge, but a repair/replacement cost is applied for lost or damaged equipment. It is expected that in the case of any damage or lost equipment, the borrower replaces or pays for repairs. Please remember that the Library is a NOT-FOR-PROFIT initiative and relies on funding and donations to be viable.
