The nation’s biggest sports day took part on Saturday 27th August across 2,500 venues throughout the UK, with 29 being held at Better Centres linked with Join In, ITV, The National Lottery and the British Olympic Association. The national campaign ‘I am Team GB’ focussed on getting 300,000 UK participants taking part in physical activity on this special day. Greenwich Starting Blocks supported athletes went out to centres to help organise, coach and encourage the community in free tasters. From trampolining to handball and athletics to skateboarding, there were a variety of sports on offer and we hope that many participants will continue sport and physical activity long term, whether it be recreationally or competitively.
In Greenwich, Sutcliffe Park Athletics Track held an I Am Team GB Open Day where local residents were able to try a range of free activities such and Javelin, Archery, Long Jump, Sprinting and Tennis. Below is a summary of the event.
