Devonport has extensive facilities for sport, with professional, amateur and community
teams taking part.
Have a look at this list - how lucky are we? We have a county cricket ground, a
couple of outdoor swimming pools on the shorefront, a brand-new sports centre, two nationally respected
rugby clubs on our doorstep - and then there is our locally famous and
highly popular Devonport Boxing Club. Some links are below, the remainder to follow for each of these sports.

friendly club and welcome runners and walkers of all levels, from the 2 1/2 hour
marathon runners to people who want to start from the beginning, and just to keep
fit. We meet every Thursday at 6.15pm at the Welcome Hall. We then go out on various
routes, after which have free tea and biccies and, where once we used to discuss
Neighbours, we now give dancing lessons!! To be seen to be believed!! We also have
track sessions in the summer. Come along and try us out, we are all daft as brushes,
