What is it?

Inter-village family sports tournament fundraiser at Baslow Sports Field.


When is it?

Friday 18th May 5:30-8pm.


What does it involve?

Mixed age and gender village teams compete against each other at Netball, Hockey, Football and Athletics. The first half 8-12 year olds play against each other and then the adults and teens switch in for the second half. Individual challenges in each sport will be available for 5-8 year olds to earn points for their teams.


How many players per team?

5* per game comprising of at least 2 females.

Kids teams should have at least 1 x 8-10 year old girl and boy

Adult teams should have at least one over 55 year old.

NB substitutes can be made and varying teams can be assembled for the different sports.

*this may be increased to 7 depending on uptake.


How much does it cost and what does it include?

£5 per player for a sport-packed evening including a free homemade energy ball, sports drink, a freebie Try-Sports taster session and parking.


What else is on offer?

A healthy barbeque, cafe and bouncy castle (charges apply)


What will the proceeds be used for?

To help renovate Baslow Sports Field pavilion to attract more users. Plans are afoot to convert the downstairs into a more inviting café area and upstairs into a useable space. (NB Tryumph Health would happily facilitate rolling out such a future event to raise funds for other village sports associations.)

Benefits to schools for supporting the event?

If schools get 20 pupils and/or their family members to sign up, they qualify for a free Tryumph Health half day visit. It also helps them score Ofsted points through “promoting children and young people’s health and wellbeing by working in partnership with other schools, early years providers, external agencies and the community; as well as by engaging with parents.”
