The annual sporting event, Sports Fest, is returning to Coventry’s city centre next week and the entire activity timetable has now been revealed. 

Once again, the city centre will be bursting with activity for six days in Broadgate from Tuesday 27 July – Sunday 1 August. 

2021’s event will see activities including basketball, dance, cycling, cheerleading, laser run, squash courts, wrestling and more from local clubs and organisations, including Coventry Dynamite Cheer, Midland Mencap, British Cycling and Positive Youth Foundation. 

Sports Fest falls perfectly in the summer holidays, with activities running from 10 am – 4 pm each day. There will also be stalls offering free health and wellbeing information along with Go CV services each day from 11 am – 3 pm.

Councillor Kamran Caan, Cabinet Member for Public Health and Sport, said: “As always, we have a brilliant range of activities for all ages and abilities on offer from local clubs and groups and I’m pleased that Sports Fest will be the first city-centre event that will get everyone active after a very tough period of restriction. 

“It’s fantastic that we are also able to bring the Rugby League World Cup Trophy Tour and Birmingham 2022 activities to the event. It’s another great example of how we bring together both community and major sporting events in the city.” 

Sports Fest 2019 attracted a huge 14,000 people over ten days, seeing Coventry residents of all ages and abilities get involved in everything from tennis and boccia with Coventry’s Young Ambassadors to cricket with Positive Youth Foundation and parkour with Ascension Dance Company.

Rugby League World Cup 2021’s Trophy Tour will also be making an appearance at Sports Fest on Thursday 29 July, whilst Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games team will join the event on Friday 30 July.
