BLAGSS is a sports and social group that now has around 450 lesbian, gay, bi-sexual and transgender members from across Brighton and Hove, Sussex and beyond.
Our aim is to encourage LGBT people to play sport. It's as simple as that. Sport is so important because health and fitness is such a vital part of our lives.
Our members are all different shapes, sizes, ages and abilities, and participate in sports as varied as badminton, tennis, squash, golf, table tennis, running, tenpin bowling, football and cycling (and many, many more).
There's also a fantastic social side to BLAGSS. There are over 700 sporting and social meetings every year. Have some fun playing sport and then have a good old chat about it in the pub afterwards.
BLAGSS is a great way to meet people, keep fit, and have fun.
You can also try BLAGSS for free! Come along to your sport of choice with a FREE 1-day membership (court fees may apply). Just go to the relevant sport page on this site and message the organiser.

It’s cold outside but you can still keep fit and active!!
Netball is a great workout and a fun team game. We play on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month at Moulescoomb Community Centre.
So if you enjoy playing netball at school and would like to play again in a friendly non-league environment? Or perhaps you've never played or don't feel as fit as you used to? Well, this is an opportunity to rediscover the fun of the game. Please don't be put off if you haven't played for a few decades - you'd be in good company! Check out the netball page to sign up.
Get active in the new year
If you would like to get out and active this new year, our Walking group is a great place to start. We do regular walks of different lengths around beautiful Sussex and sometimes beyond. Check out the walking page to see upcoming walks.
We're a fun and social group who meet fortnightly for bowling and socialising. Typically 8 to 15 of us turn up for the sessions,
The emphasis is on social rather than competitive sport and we often have a drink afterwards to chat about anything and everything. Food and drink is available during the games.
We would love to see new faces so check out our bowling page and come and join us.
