About Us

Welcome to Tyne Wear Sport. We’re a group of friends who started this guide to share the diverse sports activities available in Tyne and Wear. Our goal is to inform you about the various sports you can enjoy, like cycling along the River Tyne, running on outdoor tracks, or hiking through scenic areas. We aim to be your go-to resource for an active lifestyle in Tyne and Wear.

Our Story

Tyne Wear Sport started from our collective passion for an active lifestyle and our affection for the Tyne and Wear area. We found that our regular activities, such as coastal runs, countryside hikes, or casual games at nearby sports clubs, were more than just hobbies – they defined our way of life.

We created Tyne Wear Sport to share our lifestyle and connect with others who feel the same.

Our expertise comes from our diverse experiences and our genuine enthusiasm for sports. We offer insights into a broad range of activities, all grounded in years of active participation, continuous learning, and exploring the localities of Tyne and Wear.
