There used to be a time when if you said you were a member of the LGBT community sport wasn't on the agenda.

That's no longer the situation and some of us want to be playing as much sport as we possibly can. Well if that's how you feel you've come to the right place.

BLAGSS is a sports and social group that now has around 400 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, running, football and cycling (and many, many more).

It's not all about sport though. There's a fantastic social side to BLAGSS. There are over 700 different 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.  

If you're not yet a member, join now online! 

You can also try out 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 organizer.

Great Cycle Rides

BLAGSS Cycling group aims to cater for all types of cyclists.

We have short rides usually less than 20 miles, and involving a cafe stop, these rides are taken at a leisurely pace.

We have longer road rides which can be 30 to 40 miles round trip and usually involve a pub lunch somewhere in the glorious Sussex countryside. These rides are slightly faster, but we don't go racing around, and re-group often at the top of hills and at junctions. Septembers ride will be on 17th.

We are hoping to also offer some off-road rides in the future


New Sport: Croquet

During August and September 2017 we held three Croquet taster sessions which have proven to be a great success and fantastic fun, so much so that Croquet will feature as a new BLAGSS sport in 2018.

For full details of this and other upcoming events see our Socials page.
