GO Sport in York

Sport in York One of York’s most treasured features is its racecourse. The racecourse, located at Knavesmire, is testament to a truly sporting city and should be the first port of call for those looking for an enjoyable and sometimes monetarily rewarding day out.

A sporting visit wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the Huntingdon Stadium, Huntingdon Road. Here you can see the mighty York Knights rugby league team who continue to go from strength to strength or the less impressive but still entertaining York City Football Club.

For those who want to get involved there’s a range of sporting clubs in the city ranging from angling to archery and badminton to bowls.

Kids are not forgotten either and there’s a number of kids clubs and holiday clubs designed to get them interested in sport and hopefully tire them out.

Swimming is a sport that everybody can enjoy, no matter what his or her ability. There are three value swimming pools in York owned by York City Council. The York Barbican Centre [map], Barbican Road, has a climbing wall and a health and beauty suite as well as two swimming pools.

Yearsley Swimming Pool [map] on Haxby Road offers total fitness management and staff are on hand to ensure you get the very best from your visit and exercise safely.

The Edmund Wilson Swimming Pool [map] is located in Acomb just 10 minutes from the city centre. This large pool incorporates a fitness suite and is the perfect place for burning a few calories.

If you prefer your exercise gentle there’s a range of designated walks in York.

Get out on the Moors for camping and rambling. There are also opportunities for some more extreme activities such as mountain biking and bungee-jumping.
