"We’re thrilled to be taking part in the Festival of Sport," commented Mike Sands, General Manager at Mercedes Benz, Swindon.
"It’s a fantastic opportunity for work colleagues to come together, enjoy some exercise and, most importantly, have a great time.

“This is the first time Mercedes-Benz will take part in the Festival of Sport and our It’s A Knockout team is looking forward to some great fun."
The Festival of Sport

The Festival of Sport, now in its third year, is an extravaganza of physical activity featuring a host of sports tournaments for adults, along with scores of free activity taster sessions for everyone.

Competitive tournaments for individuals and teams on 30 May include tennis, tag rugby, football, volleyball, angling, badminton, hockey to name just a few. Registration is now open and the deadline for entries is Friday 8 May.

“The Festival of Sport is part of the wider Challenge Swindon initiative, led by Swindon Borough Council, which aims to increase participation in sport and physical activity," said Purminder Mondair, Marketing and Communications Manager at Triumph.
"This should help achieve the target of getting half the population doing 30 minutes of physical activity three times a week by 2020."
