Nottinghamshire Sports Heritage

 What is National Sporting Heritage Day?

National Sporting Heritage Day will be celebrated for the first time on 30 September 2014 and with such a wealth of sporting heritage it seems that now is the time for Nottinghamshire to shine.

Nottinghamshire Sports Heritage Week

In Nottinghamshire we have decided to extend National Sporting Heritage Day into a week, running from Monday September 29 to Sunday October 5 2014. During this time we will be raising awareness of sporting greats in Nottinghamshire as well as publicising our local heritage sites, sports clubs and their sporting history. Sports heritage is a great way of attracting new audiences who do not traditionally engage with either heritage or sport.

This year’s event has the theme of World War 1 to tie in with the commemorations. However, if you have a sporting heritage idea that doesn’t link to World War 1, still feel free to join in – the aim is to celebrate the diversity of sporting heritage.
