StreetGames case study

Easton Street Sportz is a StreetGames project which was originally based at Rawnsley House in Bristol, but has now moved the Easton Leisure Centre. The club was formed by Access Sport in partnership with the Avon and Somerset Constabulary as a response to an increase in incidences of turf-war between rival gangs, including violence, shootings and the fatal stabbing of an 18 year old youth. Initially the club offered a range of sports, but now concentrates solely on football as a result of the choice of its participants.
