Tremough 2012 Community Games

Tremough 2012 Community Games

On Saturday 28 April 2012, the Tremough Campus in Penryn, that is shared and jointly managed by the University of Exeter and University College Falmouth, is warming up for London 2012 by inviting everyone with an interest in sport to the Tremough 2012 Community Games.

Through the Tremough 2012 Community Games, FXU, the Students' Union for University College Falmouth and the University of Exeter, in partnership with FLEXSI, the Falmouth & Exeter Sports Initiative, and Cornwall Sports Partnership, aims to encompass all that the London 2012 games have to offer in terms of sport, community action and cultural diversity. The event will provide the general public with the opportunity to sample a broad selection of showcased activities.

From 10am, sporting clubs ranging from the likes of Hockey and Lacrosse to Ultimate Frisbee and Tremorz Street Dance will be on site to offer taster sessions and displays to visitors. Other student societies, including the FXU Afro Caribbean society, the High Tea society, and even the Allotments society, will have stands and exhibits with interactive activities for participants of all ages and abilities to enjoy.

FXU would also like to invite local charities and businesses to contribute to the festivities by showcasing relevant services, products or good causes on campus during the event.

"This will be a fantastic opportunity for local residents, prospective students, or even a curious general public to enjoy a festival type atmosphere in preparation for London 2012," says third- year UCF BA(Hons) Journalism student and the campuses' Be an Olympic Champion Ambassador, George Richardson.

A preliminary warm up event, the FXU dodge ball tournament, recently staged at the Dracaena Centre in Falmouth, was an enormous success and demonstrated the potential for sport to bring communities together in the spirit of the London 2012 games. Both this event and the Tremough 2012 Community Games form part of the National Union of Students' Be a Champion scheme - an initiative that aims to encourage both student and community participation in the run up to the London 2012 games.
