This project is now closed

The nationwide programme aimed to bring the values, opportunities and spirit of the Commonwealth Games to 14-25 year olds from disadvantaged areas in partnership between StreetGames and Spirit of 2012. As part of the initiative, national sports charity StreetGames will create 200 Pop Up Clubs during the summer that will enable disadvantaged young people to take part in their very own Commonwealth Games.

National sports charity StreetGames will create 200 Pop Up Clubs during the summer that will enable disadvantaged young people to take part in their very own Commonwealth Games.
The sessions will take place in communities across the country, from Glasgow to Hastings, Swansea to Southend, and will help give young people the chance to emulate Commonwealth stars by taking part in athletics, table tennis, and badminton sessions. 
It will also help young people get fit by showing them the likes of dodgeball and rugby.  

 

At the Spirit of 2012 Trust we want to ensure that neighbourhoods across the country get to feel the excitement of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games. StreetGames has the network to reach all corners of the UK and the experience to make sport fun and accessible to all. I am proud that this partnership is part of Spirit’s first major investment.
