About The PSSA

The PSSA is an association set up to encourage sporting and leisure activities for the benefit of staff of the Prison Service (England & Wales) and Private Sector Prisons.

We have various Governing Bodies of Sport ranging from Angling, Netball, Ice Hockey, Football, Rugby and Volleyball, that arrange fixtures from grass roots, national to international events; so whether you are an active player or just want to get involved, there is something for you.

We also arrange discounted leisure events ranging from theatre trips, 3 Peaks Challenge, shopping trips and our annual Christmas Party.

We take a team to the World Police & Fire Games every two years where we bring home a cache of medals.  This event is hosted worldwide and attracts in the region of 10,000 – 15,000 competitors from all over the world taking part in over 40 Sports.

We also run the Prison Service Lottery which is open to all members of staff working in establishments.  We award 12 prizes each month, totalling £9,000.00 and with a special draw at Christmas.
