physical activity facilities magazine (paf)

Affiliate Member

The physical activity facilities magazine is for professionals involved in the planning, design, construction and management of leisure, play and sports facilities.

Sport and active play are playing an increasingly important role in tackling the UK’s physical inactivity crisis. Children as young as five will be targeted as part of the government’s new strategy on sport, announced at the end of 2015, which aims to involve more people in sport and fitness.

Physical inactivity is one of the most significant health risks of our age, reaching epidemic levels, and contributing to an estimated 3.2 million deaths globally every year.
The sea change that is needed to tackle inactivity in both adults and children through regular exercise means that the play, sports and leisure sectors are undergoing an unprecedented transformation. With this comes a challenge in innovation, design, development, delivery, engagement and funding of this new ‘physical landscape’.

Brought to you by Stable Media, an official media partner of SAPCA, paf magazine showcases the latest new build and redevelopment schemes along with a lively mix of news, views and in-depth analysis.

Published four times this year in May, June, September and November. Circulation – 5,000 named individuals working on active projects including architects, specifiers, contractors, project managers, park and play officers, local authorities, educational facilities, sports and athletics clubs, owners, operators and buyers. As an editorially led publication we would welcome your latest case studies and press releases for editorial consideration.
