Welcome to the Sedgefield Games


The Sedgefield Village Games was formed in 2012 as a non-profit making organisation. Its founding members were around 20 sports clubs, community associations, and schools, with the aim of promoting sport and the wide variety of clubs and organisations within and around Sedgefield.

Our Aims - Sedgefield Village Games

 

Following a hugely successful 3 week festival in 2012 based around the London 2012 Olympics, the organisation decided to continue functioning as part of delivering the legacy aims of London 2012, by promoting sport within the Sedgefield Community and encouraging children to participate in physical activity.

The objectives of the organisation are:

  • Provide support and publicity to member clubs
  • To encourage both participation for all, and the development of talent
  • To deliver the legacy aims of the London 2012 Olympics at a local level
  • To host and organise games and events
  • To support talented individuals through bursaries
  • To provide shared sports equipment for community use
  • To integrate sport within the community and local organisations who provide cultural activities

About Bursaries

 

Bursaries awarded by Sedgefield Village Games are for the purpose of supporting people who either reside in Sedgefield or are a member of a sports club in Sedgefield or attend school in Sedgefield. The bursaries take the form of a financial award which will be key in assisting in the individuals’ development in their chosen sport. This may be to provide access to sport when it is otherwise denied for whatever reason, or to give a sports person the opportunity to achieve more than they otherwise would. Bursaries are aimed primarily at young people but may be extended to older people at the discretion of the Sedgefield Village Games committee.
