What are School Sport Day Events?
Remember the good old days of playing sport on a school field whilst completing against the other houses? That's what it is! We take you back in time playing a variety of fun classic games that you would have played at school. We specialise in the old school sports day which is aimed at smaller groups under 30 and our corporate sports day aimed at larger groups and teams.
What is the Origin of Sports Days?
In the UK it was played in schools across the country at the beginning of summer just before school broke up for the summer holidays. Children compete in inter-house sports day games individually and in teams to earn points for their house.
The games played on school sports days are varied but the classics that most people remember are; sprints, relay races, egg & spoon, three-legged race, sack races and many more. Some schools allowed parent and child races.
School sports days are played throughout the world.

- In Russia, its traditionally run on the 2nd Saturday in August
