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."
