How to Make a Sports Flyer for Free

If you are planning a sports event for your community, school or workplace, then you may want to create a sports-themed flyer to promote your event to potential athletes and other participants. Customise a flyer using a template through Microsoft Word. Print the flyer on your home printer using computer paper you already have, or ask a local copy centre to donate the printing costs and materials as a benefit to the community.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Click your Start Menu. Select All Programs, Microsoft Office and Microsoft Office Word 2007. A new word processing document will pop up on your screen. Click the yellow Office Button -- located on the top left-hand side of your screen -- and then click New.

  2. 2

    Locate the Flyers link, and double-click it. Then, double-click Event Flyers.

  3. 3

    Scroll through the options, and look for sports-related flyers. For example, there is a basketball-themed flyer in the template library. Double-click your template of choice. It will download into your word document. Customise the text by erasing the filler text in the text boxes and replacing that text with your language to describe your sports event.

  4. 4

    Add sports-related images to your flyer template. To do this, click "Insert," followed by the "Clip Art" button. In the search box, type the sport -- such as basketball, football and swimming. Press "Go." A list of images will return. Double-click the image, and it will appear on your flyer. Click the image so that it is highlighted and move it into your desired position on the flyer.

  5. 5

    Click the text boxes on the flyers. The boxes contain filler text. Highlight the text, and delete it. Replace it with information about your sporting event. For example, if you are holding a basketball clinic at a community centre, you might type the following message:

    "Get better at your game at a FREE B-BALL CLINIC!

    When: Saturday, May 10 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

    Where: Dogwood Community Center

    Who: You (and all your friends)

    Why: Because you are better than you think. Because your game can be great!

    You want to be clear, concise but also engaging. Make sure to include language that will appeal to your audience.

  6. 6

    Print and distribute your flyers. Put your flyers up at schools, community centres and at sports stores. Talk to managers, youth ministers, and community leaders about encouraging their students and youth to participate in your event. Look into the fees for printing your ad in the local newspaper.
