How will you celebrate your sport on 30th September?
National Sporting Heritage Day is celebrated by a growing community and it relies on people getting involved to make a change and have an impact. What you do on the day is really up to you and any amount of activity counts. You could organise a special event or exhibition, invite people to a reminiscence session, host a tournament for your local sports group, or share your sporting memories and collections online through short videos, blogs or photographs. You could partner up with a local school or sports club.
We have picked some of the best examples of how to celebrate National Sporting Heritage Day. Why not get some inspiration from some of our showcase events from previous years.

Register your event with us
Once you have decided on your event, just have an idea you can register your event with us. This means that we will be able to promote your event on our website, social media channels and through our national media campaign. We may also contact you to help us to understand your activity and how we can help support your work. Don’t worry if not all the details are finalised at this stage. The earlier you get in touch about your work the better chance we have of promoting your activity.
There will also be an opportunity to apply for a Community Grant to kick start your activity.
