A ‘SportsFest’ is a Come & Try event for older people that introduces them to a number of activities in a fun, supportive and social environment. Go For Life nationally through the Local Sports Partnerships and the HSE have been coordinating and supporting these events for the last number of years.
Why a SportsFest?
A Sportsfest can serve a number of functions in a community:
Cork Sports Partnership has linked up with the Health Promotion and Improvement Department of the HSE South and the UCC PE department to host a number of Older Adult SportsFests. The afternoon of activities seeks to introduce new recreational and sporting activities to the participants.
