Poynton’s Family Sports Festival is HERE

Poynton's Family Sports Festival FlyerPoynton Family Sports Festival is HERE

This year’s family fun day is returning to you with a sporting theme, inspired by the legacy of last year’s Poynton 2012 Embrace the Games event and the success of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games.

This year’s event held on Saturday 29th June 12 noon to 4:00 pm at Poynton Leisure Centre is a sports festival providing the opportunity for our community to come together, to get active and encourage more people to enjoy and take part in physical activity. This year’s event offers you a challenge – to try out a number of different sports in one afternoon. At the main entrance to the event you’ll be given a Challenge Card and should you choose to accept it we are challenging you to achieve 5 stamps – one stamp for each different sport you try out. If you can complete this challenge in one afternoon you will receive an award. So do you dare to accept this challenge?

A committee of a number of local sports groups have been helping to organise the event alongside Poynton Town Council, Cheshire East Council, Poynton Neighbourhood Police Unit, Poynton High School and Poynton Leisure Centre. The sports on offer on the day will be:

  • Badminton
  • Cricket
  • Lacrosse
  • Football
  • Tennis
  • Swimming
  • Cycling
  • Trampolining

Each of these activities will be free to take part in and admission is free so what’s stopping you??

On the day there will also be other activities to take part in and help raise money for the Poynton Legacy Fund – a local fund to support community groups and individuals to access sports and physical activity. These activities will include a climbing wall, bouncy castle, face painting and a raffle. There will also be stalls from local community groups, including refreshments in the sixth form and a BBQ from Poynton 3rd Scouts to keep your energy up on the day.

Thanks to sponsorship from “Johnnie” Johnson Housing Trust, Cheshire Peaks and Plains Housing Trust, and Poynton Town Council, entrance and sporting activities are free, so why not come along and enjoy the fun!  We look forward to seeing you there!
