7 Day Sport is an independent, family run, social enterprise. We are based in Pontardawe, in the Swansea Valley. We are a community website and welcome involvement from anyone in the local area. Whether you want to let us know about upcoming events, tell us about a personal sporting achievement or try your hand at sports journalism and write your own feature, we want to hear from you! So please get in touch.
Our mission is to promote and support grassroot sports in the Swansea and Neath Port Talbot area.
Everyone knows that sport involvement is important for physical health as well as mental health and well being. We aim to promote this to give individuals the best chance for a healthy, active lifestyle.
We also believe that sports clubs are invaluable social hubs, providing opportunities to engage with the community. individuals can meet new people, participate in social inclusion opportunities and develop a sense of belonging. This can be from playing sports and also through all of the voluntary opportunities available to people.
