Sutton Coldfield Olympic Games
The 2012 Olympic Games isn’t just being celebrated in London….it’s on its way to Sutton Coldfield!
The Sutton Coldfield Community Games (SCCG 2012) will commence on Saturday 14th July with an opening ceremony involving local school children and all residents of Sutton and the surrounding areas are invited to join in the fun.
The event to be hosted at Wyndley Leisure Centre and Clifton Road Youth Centre near Sutton town centre will offer visitors the opportunity to take part in up to 50 sporting, musical and cultural activities throughout the weekend of 14th and 15th July.
Visitors to this FREE event will be able to watch demonstrations or try out Zumba, football, tag-rugby, sailing and tae kwon-do, amongst many other others activities.
Dennis Kennedy, founder of SCCG and a long-term Sutton resident has been planning the event for nearly two years in a bid to celebrate Sutton’s rich source of sporting and cultural clubs. Now, with the backing of Birmingham City Council and the financial support of Sutton Municipal Charities the event promises to be a spectacular opportunity for everyone. Dennis himself comments,
“I have lived in Sutton for most of my life and have really benefited from the many sports clubs on offer. This is a chance for people who run clubs and societies in Sutton to show off what they have to offer local residents.”
