Get Sporty and Get Active as part of The Cultures Of Walsall


This year the Cultures of Walsall  will play host to a range of sporting activities including a range of family friendly sports provided by Active Streets and a very special young persons sports tournament organized by BMYG and funded by Walsall Council.

Apart the the more traditional sports such as Cricket and Football, there will be a range of inclusive activities including Tai Chi, Zumba and guided bike rides. For those who fancy a little bit of friendly competition people of all ages will be invited to participate in badminton, giant Jenga and archery as well as a three legged race and an egg and spoon race. So make sure you get there early and come and have a go at some healthy and fun activities!
