About Up & Under Sports
Up & Under Sports was established in January 2010 by Geraint and Jenny Lewis. This partnership has been formed through a common love of sport and between them Geraint and Jenny have over 20 years of Physical Education teaching experience. Geraint who has had experience as Head of a Physical Education Department and Jenny as a Deputy Head of Department at a Sports College have a real passion for inspiring young people through sport. Geraint and Jenny lived in Perth, Western Australia for 3 years and it was there that many of the ideas, techniques and concepts that enable them to offer such a depth of expertise was established.
On returning to the UK in December 2009, Geraint and Jenny decided to turn their vision into a reality and Up & Under Sports was born. We now offer children the opportunity to experience new and exciting sports regardless of age, gender or ability through high quality sports coaching in schools and within the community.
Up & Under Sports has a team of coaches covering the Bath, Bristol and Wiltshire area serving 60 Primary Schools, 12 Secondary and 3 Special Schools.
