Sports fever hits Tamworth this summer

Summer Playscheme

A whole host of Tamworth Borough Council sporting events are taking place to keep youngsters entertained, busy, fit and healthy during this year’s summer holidays.

And other sporting and leisure groups in the borough are being urged to let the council know about any activities and events they are organising so they can be advertised – free of charge – on the council’s website and social networks.

It is hoped by listing all the events together – council and non-council –  it will make it easier for people find out what’s available this summer and easier to get involved.

It doesn’t matter if it is a sporting event, voluntary activity or a community fun day, whether it is free of charge or needs to be paid for, all events will be added to the council’s summer activity list.

All groups need to do is email [email protected] or [email protected]  to have their event listed, free of charge. Please include a contact name and phone number, along with dates and times of the event.

Events can also be listed on the Tamworth Informed events page by clicking here.

Any events listed which are run by outside groups are not endorsed or supported by Tamworth Borough Council. It is up to parents and individuals to decide whether it is a suitable activity for them or their children to take part in. Parents are encouraged to contact the groups for more information to help make their decision.

Councillor Rob Pritchard, Deputy Leader of Tamworth Borough Council, said: “I hope as many groups as possible let us know what is taking place over the summer. This means we can give local groups a hand to advertise their events and let people know how many fantastic events are taking place during the school holidays.

“As ever, Tamworth has lots of activities taking place and I would like to see people have an easy way to find out what is available to help plan their summer activities. So if you are running sports events, community fun days, heritage events or wildlife activities please let us know. That also includes events that are outside Tamworth which are open to local residents.”
