Special Olympics Great Britain’s National Summer Games is the country’s largest multi-sports event for athletes with intellectual disabilities. As our flagship event, it is held every 4 years and represents a huge opportunity to showcase the abilities of children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The athletes compete at national level, experiencing personal achievements, enabling them to achieve health and fitness, make friends, travel and socialise.
Between 7th – 11th August 2017, the 10th National Summer Games will take place in the City of Sheffield across a number of sporting venues. 2,600 athletes with intellectual disabilities of all ages/abilities will come together over 4 days of competition, supported by 750 coaches, 900 volunteers and over 6,000 family and friends. A spectacular Olympic-style Opening Ceremony will kick-off the event at Bramall Lane Stadium, with 15,000+ guests.
The 2017 National Summer Games is already creating a wealth of interest in sports opportunities for people with intellectual disabilities from across the Yorkshire and Humberside region. The Games are a fantastic opportunity for the community of Sheffield and the surrounding areas to come together and be part of one GB’s biggest disabled sporting events of 2017.
Come along and meet Special Olympics athletes, learn about the global Special Olympics movement and how your company can get involved in the Games next summer.
