Gay Outdoor Club – The Gay Outdoor Club is an activity club for gay men and women and their friends which organises over 600 outdoor and sporting events per year from day walks to weekends climbing. To many of our members, GOC is more than just a walking group, they have found enduring friendships and the opportunity to get out and do events that they otherwise wouldn’t have had the chance to. They have local groups in every part of Great Britain who organise regular walks, cycle rides, weekends away and social events so no-one is far from a GOC event. For more specialist activities they have groups for climbing, mountaineering, canoeing, kayaking and caving which organise trips to the best places for those activities. Some of those events are for people with experience, but they also have events for novices. They regularly feature longer events such as an arctic adventure and a white water rafting expedition.

Outdoor Lads – The UK’s most social group for gay and bisexual men who love the great outdoors.
They organise over 1000 events a year, hiking, camping, climbing, hostelling, biking, canoeing, sailing, skiing and more – as well as one-off international trips and more hard-core ‘challenge’ events.

Victory Hants – Is a ‘Diverse, Active Community Involvement Organisation’ based in Fratton Portsmouth and offer sporting and leisure opportunities to individuals age 16 and over. Participants may have a previous history of homelessness, mental health issues, learning disabilities, long term unemployment or have suffered social isolation due to age, race or gender (LGBT) The purpose of the group is to break down barriers within the community by offering participants opportunities to address health and well-being issues that affect their lives and their community.

Sailing & Cruising Association – A virtual club with some 400 members all over the UK, and indeed the world, with over 100 members owning boats of all shapes and sizes. All our members share a common interest in yachting (sail and power), whether it is to skipper their own boat, crew for others or get together to charter, either at home or overseas.
Experience ranges from ocean going yacht skippers to the complete novice, and from sprightly youngsters to those of more mature years. We have a thriving women’s section with a growing number of female boat owners.
The club was selected as a finalist in RYA Club of the Year Awards in 2011. The Royal Yachting Association recognised the value of the ‘virtual’ club concept:

With no fixed club house, the organisation is still able to reach out to its members, both domestically and overseas and, with an extensive annual activities programme, the organisation brings like-minded sailors together in a professionally run, friendly and fun club.

Graces Cricket Club – The first and, to their knowledge, the only gay cricket club in the world. Founded in 1996, they exist to promote the enjoyment of the game of cricket within the gay and lesbian community. They currently play around 25 games every season in and around London – from 2007, a mixture of friendlies. Their home ground is The London Marathon Playing Field at Greenford in West London.
They operate a truly inclusive selection policy. Their pool of players ranges from experienced club cricketers with league backgrounds, through to strictly social players and a few who are playing their first organised cricket with us.
New players are always more than welcome.
